Can you forgive someone who is selfish, irresponsible, and inconsiderate and still let them know how they hurt you? Doesn't God forget our sins? I suppose that if we repent, then that is when he forgives and in this case my brother apologized but he doesn't really think he is doing wrong - I believe that he is sorry that I am mad but not really sorry that he flaked out. Can I show mercy and still hold him accountable? His problems go way beyond him not showing up and not calling when he said he was going to meet me to do some stuff for oiur dad. There are consequences to sin that we still have to face even when forgiven (not from God, but from the world). Forgiveness is hard sometimes.
