Practicing Forgiveness: What To Do When You Fail

The Gospel Coalition 2013 Clarus Regional Conference


In this 44-minute session, Tim Lane, the President of the Institute for Pastoral Care and author of Living Without Worry, navigates the tricky waters of conflict and forgiveness. The very thing that makes us right before God is one of the most difficult disciplines for us to practice. Tim provides helpful insight into developing the discipline of forgiveness.

In order to forgive, we have to be willing to pay for the injury against us. We have to take the loss. Forgiveness isn’t forgetting, and that’s what makes it difficult. As you face situations that demand your forgiveness, remember the One who was willing to pay the highest price to forgive you.
