This is just a simple logic game but teaches us a thoughtful lesson that would help us to be excellent!

Give            Get
Give            Get
Give  and   Get
Give            Get

I know, it's not that hard to answer this and others may know this already but for those don't and can't...
Here’s the simple yet profound answer:


"4GIVE & 4GET"

This is what I learned this week and let me share some of the points I find out: 

1. To forgive those who offended you who asked for your forgiveness.
 It is written in Colossians 3:13 "Bear with each other and FORGIVE whatever grievances you may have against one another. FORGIVE as the Lord forgave you." We should learn to forgive that we may also be forgiven. We should first accept that we're not perfect that we may be able to accept the faults of other people.

2. To forgive those who offended you even without asking for your forgiveness, just don't be too sensitive.
Yes, we should not be too sensitive. Sometimes, we're the only one who thinks that there is a problem because we just want to but in reality there is none.

3. But if you're really hurt and it's a serious offense, CONFRONT HIM/HER!
"If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over. But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses." Matthew 18:15-16

It will never be wrong to make the first move and it will not make you less human!

4. To forget what he/she has done to you and to be always ready to give a second chance.
Actually, 'second chance' is not written in the Bible because Jesus offers more! In Matthew 18:21-22, it is said that we should not only forgive seven times but seventy-seven times or seven times seven in other translation. It's not that literal that we should count how many times our friend or brother sins against us but He just want to show us that we should forgive endlessly like what God has done to us. He forgives us endlessly though our sins our done endlessly. It's just like forgetting. That's how forgiving our Lord is.
