The Book of Colossians 3:13 says, “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” The question you need to ask yourself is: who has wronged you? Remember the Lord’s prayer – “Give us this day, our daily bread and forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sin against us.” In other words, ‘If I don’t forgive those who wrong me, don’t give me this day my daily bread.’ Daily bread means the essentials of life; all you need to live for Him.
Regardless of the circumstances, whether you are wrong or right, whether you are the accuser or the accused, whether you are the offender or the offended, to live in the freedom that God desires for you, you must forgive and let go of the offence. Many keep battling with stagnation, limitation, disappointment, and setback because they are victims of the trap of unforgiveness. The knowledge that you have sinned and been forgiven creates mercy and compassion towards others. Don’t allow sin and confrontation to tear down your relationship with God. Always have it in mind that no man or woman is perfect.
Prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, help me to love enough to overlook the mistakes of others.
