Verse of the Day

Colossians 3:13

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

Forgive One Another

One of the ways we can show others the love of God is through forgiveness. When we forgive others as God forgave us, then they will see the love of Him in our lives. Our offenses are great against the Lord, greater than anyone else’s offenses against us. So we should make allowance for our offender’s faults. This can be extremely difficult when they do not apologize. Maybe they do not even realize that they have offended you. Yet, by offering forgiveness, you can also move on with your life. You will not hold onto their offenses anymore.

Who do you need to forgive today? Relationships are much more important than anything that can separate them. Pray and ask God to help you forgive today.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
Help me forgive those who have offended me. May I forgive others like you have forgiven me. Amen.
