Forgiveness

spring-664911_640Acts 7:60: And falling to his knees he cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep. (ESV)

Jesus said that we need to forgive others from our heart, otherwise, we have something else coming for us (Matthew 18:35).

When we dwell on the forgiveness we have had from father, God. Then we will be more disposed to give it to others. Jesus also said: freely you have received, freely give (Matthew 10:8).

We did not have to pay for God to forgive us, he extended the grace of forgiveness to us, we should do the same to others, becoming conduits of the grace of God.

When we speak it should be as those ministering grace to the hearers (Ephesians 4:29). Unforgiveness, vengefulness, all manifest in the words that we speak, in caustic words. The same with love, kindness.

The woman who is described as virtuous in the book of Proverbs was said to have the law of kindness in our mouth (Proverbs 31:26).

She expresses good wishes to others, they love to be around her, her love expressed empower others to be themselves in all ramifications.

Unforgiveness is the brother of bitterness, which the bible says is a root that causes defilement, and the evil end of it cannot easily be unveiled (Hebrews 12:14-15).
