Under what circumstances would you forgive someone unconditionally?

asked by WHITESUNSHINE87 on August 12, 2017


But I love intelligently. If they demonstrate that they are (dishonest, untrustworthy, etc) then I take note. I love them, but trust is earned. I don't make a big deal of it, just take note who they are right now and what kind of person they are trying to be when no-one is looking.
Forgiveness is a separate issue. It means I don't hold resentment, I don't keep bringing it up.

If I have, say, breached someone's trust, forgiveness is a beautiful gift. But it's my responsibility to demonstrate that in the future they can trust me.

You are right.Trust must be earned.So,the one who does something untrustworthy must do something to earn back the trust.

I think I might be able to love my son enough to forgive him unconditionally. I've been hurt by him in the past, and was always able to forgive him. I love my father so much that even though I never forget how he hurt me, I make excuses for him. And I love God so much that I have never blamed Him for the misfortunes of life or the cruelty of nature...not one bit.

I readily forgive my family but I often ask God why people have to suffer?:)

Unconditional Love.
