Forgive each other // 16-05-18

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians‬ ‭4:32‬ ‭NIVUK‬‬

Unforgiveness leads to a hard heart, division, separation and a breakdown in relationships resulting in isolation! However justified I feel in not forgiving someone the consequence is just as bad, if not worse, for me than it is for them! So God tells me to forgive in the same way I have been forgiven by Him, to be kind and compassionate instead of vengeful and offended. I don’t have to be held hostage to my bitter feelings because God has shown me a way to freedom. Who do you need to forgive today? Who can you show kindness and compassion to who might not deserve it? It might look hard up front but in practicing grace you’ll find that the results are amazing 😊
