We all know someone who may be a difficult person or we may, at times, even be that difficult person! It can be easy to write those types of people off as we may feel like they will "never be happy." It can be even harder to move forward if we have been hurt by someone. No matter what we face, we need to remember the lessons of forgiveness that Jesus both taught and demonstrated!
When we encounter a difficult situation or a difficult person that may hurt us in some way, we need to stop and call on God. It is usually not easy for us to see a lesson or be able to forgive in the moment, but with God's guidance we can learn to forgive. We can look at the examples and lessons from Jesus. We can feel God's love in our hearts and throughout our lives. From His lessons to His love, we can learn to bear with others, even the most difficult people in our lives. As we bear with them, we can learn about and from them and allow ourselves to forgive them!
Bear with others in your life and learn to forgive them as Jesus has taught you!
Thank You for Your unconditional love and forgiveness. Help me to learn to be more forgiving. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
