Sunday Verses

Inspiring Devotional on Forgiveness
Happy Sunday! Today is Palm Sunday. I would be remiss if I didn't share about forgiveness during Lent--the season focusing on Jesus and his sacrifices for forgiveness. Forgiveness is hard, especially when we have been carelessly wronged or hurt. It is even more difficult when the person does not acknowledge the wrongdoing. Whether a person apologizes or not, we are asked to forgive each other. It does NOT mean what was done to us was okay, but it frees us up to better love each other and to better love Jesus. Forgiveness says, "Yes, you screwed up--maybe intentionally, maybe unintentionally--but, I realize I mess up plenty too and I also need forgiveness." Forgiving someone is gift to ourselves and it allows us to better accept God's perfect mercy.

  2. Not forgiving doesn't hurt the person but yourself! Keep your heart and soul free of turmoil by forgiving.
