If you forgive the wrongs they have done to you, your Father in Heaven will also forgive you. Matthew 6:14
Happy Thursday! It’s a great time to ask for forgiveness and to forgive others.
Do you ever have a difficult time forgiving? Do you forgive someone only to find the same thing happens repeatedly? Imagine how frustrated God must be with us. I know I make the same mistakes over and over. The truth is we don’t need to wait until Forgiveness Thursday to forgive. We should stop what we are doing immediately and forgive someone when they have wronged us. I have a professor who says he pulls off the side of the road when he begins to experience road rage, so he can get his heart in the right place. It makes me laugh. You must admit, if you are running late for work, and you have to pull off the road, you’ll get straight with God quickly. It’s tough, but it keeps your heart pure and prevents bitterness. We are so fortunate that God forgives us, no matter how many times we make a mistake or how bad it is. All we have to do is ask for forgiveness. It’s so simple that some refuse to believe.
Today, I encourage you to release your soul from guilt and anger. Ask for forgiveness, while forgiving others. God bless you.
