Forgiving doesn’t mean saying that the offending act or words were okay. It also doesn’t mean keeping that person or people in your life, afterward. If you can’t be sure the act won’t be repeated, keeping that person around would be like keeping a wolf around your pet chickens. Even if you tell the wolf “No!” sternly, he’s probably going to scarf a chicken as soon as you turn your back. You can forgive him, then gently escort him out of the henhouse.
