Podcast Episode 292: The Important Difference Between Forgiveness and Trust

Aug 5, 2017 | Podcasts

In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by David Loy


In this episode, we answer a listener’s question on the relationship between forgiveness and trust.


Forgiveness has the power to either bind or release a family, business, or relationship.

  • Forgiveness means more to the forgiver than to the person being forgiven.
  • In order to forgive someone, they don’t have to ask for it, deserve it, or even be aware you’re forgiving them.
  • Forgiveness is a decision, not an emotion.
  • People can sense bitterness, and they won’t remain around it for long.


Forgiveness is about the past—trust is about the future.

  • You can forgive somebody who wrongs you even if you don’t trust them anymore.
  • Someone can prove himself trustworthy again by not making the same mistakes.


Tune in to hear the Bible passage that shaped Andy’s view on forgiveness.
