What happens when you forgive a person who refuses to forgive you in return? Suppose after you forgive, the other refuses to talk with you. How do you come to a peace when you know the other hates you?

There are no guarantees that your forgiveness will change the other person.  Part of forgiving is knowing that you have done your best to offer compassion and even love to the other.  You can go in peace knowing that you have done your best.

    Great post! I often pray as I drive past places where I used to work, where people seemed to bear grudges against me. I pray, “I forgive you for not forgiving me.” Then, I drive away, repeating, “I forgive you!” And I have a peace. I pray for their peace, too.
