Even as adults, we sometimes behave as middle schoolers. We may learn to "hide' our true feelings better than middle school students, but there are times when we find it easy to forgive and times we hold tight to a grudge. Jesus provides us with some advice that applies to every situation. Jesus reminds us that we need to be forgiving people. Jesus knows that, at times, this can be easier said than done. We may struggle to forgive people, especially when they don't seem sorry. As we pray, we need to remember to forgive others, just as God has shown us forgiveness through Jesus. To be forgiven, we need to ask God to strengthen us and help us to forgive!
Make forgiving part of your daily prayer routine!
Thank You for Your willingness to forgive me. Help me to forgive others as You have forgiven me. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
