Forgiveness Thursday – Emulate Jesus

For if you forgive others their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins], your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
‭‭MATTHEW‬ ‭6:14‬ 

Good morning!  I hope you have a wonderful Thursday.  This morning I have a little helper.

Is there someone in your life that just drives you crazy?  Does someone’s habits get on your nerves?  Does someone speak down to you like you’re stupid?  I’d be surprised if no one in your life falls into one of these categories.  Is it their problem or yours?  It might be a little of both, but definitely yours, if you don’t forgive them and show them love.  One thing that drives me crazy is uncleanliness. I have met people who have hang-ups about food.  There are all kinds of little oddities that get under our skin.  However, it is not our place to judge others.  Jesus showed love to everyone, even those who were unclean.  Why should we let our hang-ups get in the way of God’s love.

Also remember that everyone has bad things in their lives.  No one is exempt.  If you feel inundated with bad things that are making you sad, remember that it is how we choose to respond that makes the difference in our own happiness.

Today, if someone is driving you crazy, take a deep breath and reflect on what Jesus would do.  Don’t forget to forgive yourself and others.  God bless you.
