Do Forgiveness And Feelings Go Together?

Pastor Tim Dillmuth says that forgiving based on our feelings is a faulty way to practice Scriptural forgiveness.  He says that sometimes our feelings cooperate with forgiveness, but more often they do not.  This may happen in cases where you have been greatly hurt or among family members . . . like brother and sister!

    There are times when it does not feel good at all to forgive but we know that our heavenly Father commands us to forgive. That is not to say that we must reconsile or have an ongoing relationship with the person we have forgiven or that we must somehow trust that person. In many cases it would be downright foolishness to try and continue a relationship with or to trust that person again. Forgiveness is about handing that person over to God. There are times when it is prudent to keep a cool distance.
