Today Is the Day
Peter got up the nerve to ask, “Master, how many times do I forgive a brother or sister who hurts me? Seven?” Jesus replied, “Seven! Hardly. Try seventy times seven” (Matthew 18:21–22, MSG).
Having healthy relationships is central to what God wants for the body of Christ. They are to be healthy, loving, and forgiving. And this is true not only within our immediate circle of fellow Christians but also with our neighbors, business acquaintances, and even our enemies! What this means is that we must seek forgiveness when we have wronged others and we must forgive others when they have wronged us.
Do you have relationships where things aren’t right? It could be in your marriage, with your children, with your parents, or with somebody at your church. Someone close that you trusted may have burned you. Or it may be that you’ve let somebody else down and you’re estranged because of what you have done. Let this be the day when you say, “Lord, forgive me. Help me to forgive and have the courage to go and seek forgiveness from the person I have wronged.”
The ultimate meaning of life is found in healthy relationships with God and with our fellow man. Don’t wait. Decide to get those relationships right. Today is the day.
