Question

Should we forgive even though the other person does not seem repentant?

Bible Answer

Luke 6:37 (NKJV) “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven."

Inspired Answer

"If he does you an injury knowingly, and afterward repents, saying, “Forgive me,” it is not for you to turn away, refusing to forgive him because you think that he does not feel humble enough and does not mean what he says. You have no right to judge him, because you can not read the heart."—Mrs. E. G. White {SW January 1, 1903, par. 5}
