Forward in Forgiveness
Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
Father, though I practice forgiveness toward those who have wronged me, I still find it difficult to bless them. Instead of reaching out in love, I avoid them. Instead of giving without expectation, I bristle when they don’t react to gestures how I think they should. Lord, help me see them with fresh eyes – the eyes of the Savior who died for them and me. Help me emulate the selfless generosity, compassion, and mercy of Jesus. Brush away all the cobwebs of grudges and past hurts from my heart and fill those spaces with your kind Spirit. Amen.
