The Bible says that we should not hurt others. The Bible says that we have a responsibility to love our neighbor as ourselves. The Bible also says that if we don’t forgive others, God will not forgive us.
But God also takes into account our motives for doing so. He knows that sometimes we hurt others out of love and concern for them. For example, when Jesus was asked what is the greatest commandment in the Law, he replied, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:39) In other words, if you want to know what pleases God most, it’s not just loving Him; it’s loving your neighbor as yourself. This means that when someone hurts you, they may be doing so because they love you and want what’s best for you.
In these cases we need to show forgiveness and understanding toward the person who has hurt us. We should pray for them because they have sinned against us (1 John 1:9). And we should try our best to forgive them from our hearts (Mark 11:25).

Bible verses about hurt feelings
Here are some Bible verses about hurt feelings:
Psalm 18:46 (NRSV) “The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock! Exalted be God, the rock of my salvation.”
The Bible is filled with passages that speak about how we should treat our fellow human beings. Loving one another is a key part of Jesus’ message, and it’s also very important in the Old Testament.
In the New Testament, Jesus said that if you want to know what God thinks about something, look at how he treats people — especially those who are most vulnerable: children and the poor. This is true not only for Christians but for all people of good will.
Here are some Bible verses that talk about how we should treat others:
“Love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:31).
“Do not judge others.” (Matthew 7:1).
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.” (Philippians 2:3).
“Let no debt remain outstanding except the continuing debt to love one another…” (Romans 13:8).
“The LORD takes care of the righteous, but the wicked, those who love violence, he pays them back in full.” – Psalm 37:28
“I saw that all labor and all achievement spring from one person’s envy of another.” – Ecclesiastes 4:4
“Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers over all wrongs.” – Proverbs 10:12
“You know what is right and you know what is wrong. So when you do something wrong, it is because you chose to do so.” – Ecclesiastes 7:15
“Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid.” – Proverbs 12:1
God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16)
In this Bible verse, we learn that God is not the author of pain or suffering. He is not the one who hurt you. He is the one who can heal your wounds and restore your joy.
If we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.(1 John 1:7-9)
God wants us to be honest with Him about how far away our sinful condition has gotten from His perfect standard. When we do this, it opens up the door for Him to reveal His forgiveness so that it can fill our hearts with joy again!
