"For if ye forgive men their trespasses,
your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses,
neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."
Matthew 6:14,15
Freely Forgiving
There's a sign in a convenience store which reads:
"Check cashing policy:
To err is human. To forgive, $20.00."
That's a funny way to recognize the fact that
we make mistakes.
But it's also evidence of the way many people
think about forgiveness.
To forgive is to accept within yourself
the consequences of the sins of others.
It means to accept the pain,
the problems and the burden that comes
when someone sins against you.
Forgiveness is neither easy nor a frequent gift.
Look at what God has done for us . . .
"Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not
redeemed with corruptible things,
as silver and gold,
from your vain conversation
received by tradition from your fathers:
But with the precious blood of Christ,
as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Who verily was foreordained
before the foundation of the world,
but was manifest in these last times for you."
1Peter 1:18-20
It wasn't money or anything of wealth
or value in worldly terms.
He gave His Son!
Jesus took upon Himself the burden of our sins.
Forgiveness was freely given to us!
And if God has forgiven us,
is it not time that we forgive others?
For it is better to forgive the injustices of the past
than to allow them to take root
and add bitterness to our future.
Forgive and Live!
