Believe me – there can never be peace without forgiveness. Forgiveness is one of the central lessons in life and teachings of Jesus. It provides us with spiritual health. When we forgive we share the love of God with others and rid ourselves of dangerous poisons that prevent us from growing spiritually.
Without Forgiveness – we feel resentment, frustration, anger and anxiety. It is also something that society says is counterculture. Jesus said “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”
Who are your enemies, do you prayed for them? Don’t forget the everyday things people do to wrong you.
Forgiveness and generosity are two things that Jesus challenges us to do.
Point to Ponder: Everybody has someone to forgive.
Verse to Live: Matthew 6:14
Question to consider or comment upon: How seriously do you take Jesus’ invitation to forgive.
Prayer: Jesus you forgive me even when you know I’ll fall short again and sin. Teach me to be that generous with my forgiveness. AMEN
