HOW TO FORGIVE YOUR FRIENDS
Some friends can never cease to step on our toes as long as we live. There are some that could step on toes in the dream.
Some have built a default engine of offence that get them on people's nerves at will.
Someday and sometimes, we've lost friends for what they have done.
Many a time we find ourselves at the crossroad of whether to forgive those who have offended us or not, and we are lost in the bid for the right option.
Today, I came up with a formula with which you'll know the friends to forgive and those you are not to forgive.
And before you lose the next friend, do this calculation to see if it's worth calling it quit.
You want to try it? Then take a pen and paper and write.
STEP 1. Count how many times someone has offended you and write it down.
STEP 2. Count how many times you've offended God and write that down also.
STEP 3. Subtract the times someone has offended you from the time you've offended God.
E.g Number of times I've offended God - Number of times someone has offended me =
STEP 4. If the answer is more than one (1) then you can forgive the person but if it's less than one, you might choose not to forgive the fellow.
I tried it myself and it's uncountable.
"For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
But he you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." (Matthew 6:14,15)
