Sometimes, the very hardest thing in the world is to forgive others for their sins against us. Yet, we must. Why? Our Lord told us that we should, as He forgave us first. Because of that forgiveness to us, we are to extend that to others as well – even non-Christians.
Questions for further thought:
1. What is the biggest thing that stops you from forgiving others? Pride? Self-righteousness? Past hurts?
2. Who is the one person that you need to forgive the most right now?
Challenge: Lord, help us to forgive those just as you forgave us. It is hard, but we know we must do it, because you did. And you had no sin at all against anyone, but took all sins upon you. Amen.
