Forgiveness

forgiveness

This is the actual definition of forgiveness.

A lot of times we struggle with forgiveness and justify our anger or hatred towards someone because we feel we have the “right” to those feelings because of what has been done to us. But the Lord calls us to be like Him. Forgive like Him. Love like Him. Live like Him. This is extremely hard.

This is so hard when someone hurts you. They hurt you when you don’t deserve it. They hurt you when you showed kindness and love. They hurt you when you would do anything for them. They hurt you and turn their back on you. They hurt you much like we have hurt Jesus.

Yet, we receive love. We receive forgiveness. We receive grace. Even for our worst mistakes. Today, I choose to forgive. Forgive fully. To the point of wishing well. Forgive as Christ has forgiven me and continues to forgive me despite my many faults and failures.

Today, lets choose to forgive and love one another when we least deserve it.Eph 4.3col3.13
