Are you forgiving others?

Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
Colossians 3:13

Who offended you this week? Maybe a friend forgot to call or a family member said something hurtful. You might have been slighted by a coworker or cut off by an aggressive driver on the highway. These nicks and cuts add up over time, taking a toll on our own ability to forgive others and to ask their forgiveness for the ways we hurt them.

You probably have some more serious injuries you’re carrying around as well. Lifelong wounds of betrayal, abuse, loss, and addiction do not heal overnight. They require you to seek the Lord’s healing as you work through the process of recovery and restoration. While the consequences may continue to clutter your life, you can advance your healing dramatically by forgiving the people who have hurt you.

Forgiveness restores those lines that have been crossed and enables us to appreciate how God forgives us.

You can grow closer to God with my full Jesus Daily® Devotional Book at fine bookstores everywhere.

Pray: “Lord, help me to forgive those who have harmed me. Also, open my eyes to those whom I have injured as well so that I can ask them to forgive me.”
