Why It Is Not Possible To Forgive And Forget

Forgive and Forget!
We are often required to forgive our offenders and equally forget their injuries to us. Well, we can forgive and forget depending on the injury caused.

If the body/flesh was injured, there is the possibility that we would forgive and forget if the injury was a genuine accident. Such as playground injuries or other injuries which were unintentional. The Mind tends to forget these types of injuries.

Jesus: Messiah For The Gentiles? And Jehovah, The God Of Israel?

Matthew 15: 22-24
22. A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.”

23. Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.”

24. He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”

Besides, "He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him." -John 1:11

From the above bible verses, it is perceptible that Jesus was sent for Israel. But the children of Israel rejected him.
