GOD DOES NOT INSIST ON OUR

FORGIVING OTHERS FOR THE SAKE

 OF THAT PERSON ALONE BUT FOR

PEACE IN OUR OWN LIVES.

 

Lord, as hard as this may be for me to comprehend or rationalize, Your Word is clear:  if I forgive others when they sin against me, You, my heavenly Father, will also forgive me.  But if I do not forgive others their sins, You, my Father, wilol not forgive my sins (Matt. 6:14-15).

So empower me to bear with others and forgive whatever grievances I may have against them.  Help me to forgive as You, Lord, have forgiven me (Col. 3:13). 

If someone sins against me seven times in a day, and seven times comes back to me and says, “I repent,”  I desire to be obedient to You.  Strengthen me, Lord, to forgive him, to forgive her (Luke 17:4).
