Ultimately, no one can hurt us. We have nothing to lose, because all our treasure is in Christ. This can be a very hard lesson, and it may take a lifetime to learn, but even at the beginning of the journey we can recognize the truth. Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” When we are hurt by another, it is because we think that person has stolen some of our treasure. The process of becoming healed and becoming able to offer forgiveness comes with the realization that our real treasure is elsewhere; it is secure where no one can hurt it.
