A Story of Betrayal and Forgiveness

If you are hurting now and the pain of betrayal is excruciating, this film, A Place in the Heart could help you find comfort in a forgiving heart. The Christian faith is based upon the forgiveness of God.

Betrayal is something that doesn’t come from anyone else, but from someone who’s dear to us and that’s the saddest and hardest part.

The hurtful sting of betrayal (hatred, resentment, bitterness, and grudge) is something that you either hold on for the rest of your life or learn to let go of it and move on, the choice is yours! Nevertheless, the Bible teaches us the pains of betrayal, but it also teaches us the benefits of forgiveness.

A Place in the Heart is a great story of betrayal and forgiveness.  It is a story of Nathan who returns home to ask his high school sweetheart to marry him, but only to find that she had fallen in love with his very best friend.  Nathan was consumed with hatred and resentment causing him not to see that his best friend’s beautiful sister is in love with him. In the end Nathan needs to choose whether to hold on to his resentment toward his best friend or to let go of it and love again.

A Place in the Heart is an awesome movie that illustrates the pains of betrayal and getting over them take time. When the betrayal is fresh, the idea of forgiveness can be strange to us.  Nevertheless, holding on to the painful sting of past betrayal hinders us from experiencing the beauty of today.

A Place in the Heart contains a powerful message that the key to finding love and happiness once again is forgiveness –opening up your heart. Forgiving those who hurt and betrayed us is for our own success and happiness.

A Place in the Heart is a film that reminds us that forgiveness is an essential element of our spiritual growth and moving forward stronger than before.  Forgiveness can be a hard task, but remember, you can do all things through Christ who gives you strength (Philippians 4:13).

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice.  And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”  Ephesians 4:31-32
