The 3 E’s in forgiving

on April 12, 2014

“One of the secrets of a long and fruitful life is to forgive everybody everything everynight before you go to bed.” -Bernard Baruch

“Forgive as the Lord forgave you…And over all these virtues put on love…” -Colossians 3:12-14

Forgiveness. God is the ultimate example in forgiveness – He sent us Jesus and calls us to Him, no matter how terrible we’ve sinned! Remember, we are wholly forgiven by God, fully loved by God. This should strengthen us to extend complete forgiveness to others.

Focus on the E’s in forgiveness. Tell yourself:

“May I forgive EVERYBODY for EVERYTHING EVERYNIGHT”.

You will be set free from the guilt and burdens you carry when you forgive and let go. And you have to work at it all the time in order to move forward and heal.

If we are forgiven by God solely on His love and grace, we should do the same for each other- strive to extend forgiveness and love no matter what. Putting on the virtue of love will do wonders in the path to forgiveness.

Come to God at the first sign that you need help in forgiving! Remember to constantly forgive and forget EVERYBODY for EVERYTHING EVERYNIGHT.
