Love only works when mixed with forgiveness

Otherwise, don’t call it love. If you can’t forgive the person you can’t love them either. Without forgiveness, the person becomes unapproachable. How can you love without proximity?
Just as love is a command, forgiveness is also a command. And when you don’t forgive, you’re ignoring the command of Jesus. Forgiveness is a prerequisite for love as both go hand in hand.
When Jesus said “Love your enemies,” it was definitely a “loaded” command. Because there were appropriate reasons for your ongoing enmity. All this time, you just avoided that person and kept a safe distance. Now, with Jesus’ command, you’re trapped. You’ve got to forgive. So now, it’s time to deal with it.
