Christmas is For-Giving

Matthew 6 14-15

 

Verse of the Day:   Matthew 6:14-15

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

 

We have all made mistakes, none of us are perfect. There are times we need to ask for forgiveness and there are times we need to forgive. How can we come to God asking for forgiveness when we have not forgiven?  When we hold on to blame and offenses it creates an environment of bitterness in our heart. Let go of the anger and give the gift of forgiveness not only for the offender but for yourself as well.

Kill Them with Kindness

Proverbs 25 21-22

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 25:21-22

If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.  In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.

 

Have you ever heard the expression “kill them with kindness”?  It means to put an end to anger and bitterness by showing kindness and generosity. The more you treat your enemy with unexpected kindness and generosity the more they will see the same love, forgiveness, mercy and grace that the Lord shows you.

A Bitter Heart

Matthew 12 34

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 12:34

You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good?  For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.

 

Don’t let evil thoughts and feelings fester in your heart.   If you are holding on to some sort of bitterness try to get to the bottom of what is making you feel this way. Ask God to help you get rid of any resentment and anger you may be holding on to. Eventually, what is in your heart will pour out of your mouth and cause you problems.

Forgive

1matthew 6 14-15

Matthew 6:14-15

Verse of the Day:   Matthew 6:14-15

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

 

Forgiveness is a key element when you come to God in prayer, not only God forgiving you but you forgiving others.  When you hold on to blame in your heart it creates an environment of bitterness and an unforgiving spirit will block your spiritual progress.  Sometimes you have to forgive others for your own peace of mind and sometimes you just have to forgive yourself.
