Extending Forgiveness

Description

Forgiveness is one of the most important aspects of life. Yet, it is also one of the most difficult things we can ever take part it.

“‘Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?’ Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.’” Matthew 18:21-22

THINK

Forgiveness is one of the most important aspects of life. Yet, it is also one of the most difficult things we can ever take part it.

Many times, we look at forgiveness as something we do for the other person. We believe that if we forgive someone for the wrong they’ve done to us, then we are doing them a great service. But in reality, forgiveness is more for the offended than the offender; it’s more for the victim than the vandal.

If you are holding onto something someone has done for you, work this week to let it go. Work toward forgiving them. And experience the freedom that comes with the forgiveness God has called you to extend!

PRAY

Forgiving someone who has done you wrong is never easy. Ask God for His strength and His ability to help you forgive whoever has wronged you.

ACT

Extending forgiveness is not possible without first experiencing it. And the greatest act of forgiveness is that which God has extended to us. If you have not first experienced that forgiveness, you can right now by praying to accept Jesus into your life. If you have experienced God’s forgiveness, write down one specific way in which you can extend forgiveness to someone else this week.
