There is always this tricky feeling inside of me whenever I think and talk about this particular subject. It’s very complicated yet very important thing that determines our relationship with God.
…and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
Our lord Jesus Christ teaches us that forgiveness work two-ways between ourselves and others, and between ourselves and our Father. We will never have a clear relationship with God when we still have unforgiveness in our heart.
Do not suit yourself in a pity party where you kept saying:
“I’m so hurted.”
“The pain is unbearable that I cannot give forgiveness.”
How many times have you been hurting people without you even realized it? The sentence is just a gentle soft reminder for the fact that we are all sinner. None of us are in the position to judge others. However, don’t set your mind on your mistakes in the past, it won’t take you anywhere.
Who am I not to forgive for I have sinned and God forgave me anyway?
Let’s embrace our lives. It has the right amount of pleasure and pain. Choose to learn in every step of the way. Don’t hold grudge towards others, hatred eats your soul. You’re going down while the people you hate are living their lives just still.
Choose to be happy. Surround ourselves with family and friends who are full of joy.
Let us forgive and have a great 2014!
