Today we’re starting a brand new series called “Blind Spots.” Here’s the thing about blind spots: they are, by definition, difficult for us to see—we’re blind to them! No matter how much we want to consider our blind spots, we really can’t do it alone. Our aim with this series is to gain the insight of those who are able to see so that they can come alongside us and help us identify and humbly repent of the sins we might be blindly entertaining.

In today’s episode, we’re talking about the blind spot of unforgiveness with my friend Vaneetha Risner. Vaneetha’s story is an incredible testament to the power of looking to the grace of God to enable us to forgive unimaginably difficult offenses. We pray this conversation encourages you to lean on the Lord for the strength to forgive, even when it’s difficult.



  • What has it looked like for you to bear the burden of unforgiveness in your life?
  • What happens in us when we refuse to forgive? What does God do in us when we do forgive?
  • How, specifically, does the gospel compel you to forgive? 
  • How might you lean into God’s help as you seek to forgive others?
  • What might you do or implement based on what you learned in this week’s episode?
