Forgiveness is hard. It’s much easier to be angry, or hold a grudge. When we have been hurt or when we have hurt other people, it is difficult to forgive. But that’s exactly what Jesus calls us to do – forgive those who sin against us – each and every day of our lives.
Forgiveness is an ongoing process that opens doors for the future. Forgiveness breaks the chains of anger that hold us captive. By forgiving those who have sinned against us, we do not allow the past to dictate our future. Forgiveness frees us so that we may live life anew.
Thanks be to God! Amen.
