Today I want to talk about Forgiveness. This is a difficult thing for most people to do. Myself included. I know we all work on not holding onto the negative in our daily lives.
While traveling outside of Ruidoso NM I saw a billboard that says only one word, “FORGIVE”.
Wow, what an impact that had on me and I wonder what impact it has on others as they drive by and read the billboard? I mean you can’t miss it, it’s Huge. Who took the time and spent their hard earned money on the billboard? Are they sending a message to someone they know? or did they learn this lesson and wanted to share it with others? It really makes you think doesn’t it.
Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your father will not forgive you.
I heard someone say “I had to forgive this person for what they have done or their negativity would start to effect my life and make me bitter.” Well that really sums it up doesn’t it. When you do not forgive, the negativity attached to the action impacts you in a negative way.
God want us to forgive others for the bad things that they do to us or the hurtful words they say to us and in turn he will forgive us of our sins. This is the way the universe works.
If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.
Have a Blessed Day!
