Mercy > Judgment // 03-07-18

“Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.” Colossians‬ ‭3:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This sounds great when we’re on the receiving end of it but so difficult when we need to do it! We want mercy and grace shown to us when we get things wrong but our natural instinct is judgment when it comes to others who wrong us. But this is the challenge, to be like Jesus! Lord, save me from the need to avenge, thank you for forgiving me, now help me to make allowance, to overlook and to love like You, Amen 😊
