Forgive & Forget?

Henry Ward Beecher said that to say, "I can forgive, but I cannot forget" is just another way of saying, "I cannot forgive."  Paul tells us that we are to forgive one another "just as God in Christ has forgiven you. (Ephesians 4:32)  

How has he forgiven us? He’s forgiven us completely, without any merit on our part. None of us deserve to be forgiven, but he has lavished it on us anyway. He forgives our sins — all of them — completely.  And then he forgets: "And I will not remember your sins." (Isaiah 43:25)  

In forgiveness, forgetting is a matter of choice. To not remember an offense means that you will no longer
