Take the time to... FORGIVE

~Friday for Friends~

Sometimes hurt goes deep down. Scars are left. Nightmares keep us awake. And we're called to forgive? Yes.

"But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:15 (NIV)

"Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?”
Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.[a]""Matthew 18:21-22 (NIV)

"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you." Ephesians 4:32 (NIV)

"Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you." Colossians 3:13 (NIV)

We have the perfect example of forgiveness- God. And if God forgives us, we can - with His help - try to follow this example.
