Sunday Verses

forgive others to experience peace this year
Happy Sunday! As we prepare to begin a new year, most of us spend at least a few minutes thinking about how we want the year to be different. We think about our hopes and dreams for the future and for many of us, that includes some resolution to live a more peaceful and centered and loving life. Peace begins within us, but when we harbor anger and ill-will towards others we will never know peace. Forgiveness is hard. It is difficult to forgive others who have wronged us, who have never said they were sorry, who may not even acknowledge that they hurt us. But, God asks us to do it because he knows forgiveness sets us free. Forgiving others does not mean their behavior was okay. It does not mean the wrongs are swept under the rug and forgotten or give someone a free pass to hurt us. It does allow us to heal, to draw closer to God, to experience peace. Let's start the new year experiencing the peace that comes from forgiveness.
