I READ: Matthew 6:9-14
Forgiveness is not an easy matter, especially if you can still feel the bitterness in your heart. Although it is not easy, it does not mean we can’t do it because forgiving is just like making a decision. If we don’t want to forgive, the above verse says that the Father in Heaven will not forgive us either. Without God’s forgiveness, we have no place in Heaven. Once we forgive, we must immediately forget and not remember nor speak again the mistakes of others. A person who is easy to forgive will have a clean conscience and he/she can live this life peacefully. Conversely, people who have difficulty in forgiving, will have a lot of bitterness that will be bad not only for his/her health but also his/her relationships with fellow human beings.
I DECLARE: 1 Peter 4:8b – for “love will cover a multitude of sins
I DO: What action will I take today after meditating on the Word of God?
I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit.
