Forgiving: Comparing Man’s Memory with God’s

Oh forgive and forget
How could that ever happen?
To forget, I mean
The offence has registered its presence
Has its own folder in my cabinet
Forget?
Never
Maybe

The hurts have passed
Yet the memory remains
Just a scratch away?
Or buried deep, never to be seen
Hopefully

How do you forgive like God?
His memory is neither short, nor long
It is present, just present
When He forgets
It is that what he forgot never was
So that there was nothing He forgot

God forgives with forgetting
Literally

So if when God forgives, He forgets
It becomes awkward when one tries
To remind Him of something that
He has no memory of.
Therefore, “what in My Name are you talking about?”
