SOME THOUGHTS FROM THE PASTOR
Locked-up or free?
Matthew 6:12 “. . . and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”
“How?” You even asked yourselves, “Why should we forgive?”
May I suggest that we forgive because we want to have better relationships and because we want to have better mental health. Sometimes we have poor view of God so we need to seek forgiveness for painting God with a wrong paintbrush.
Sometimes we mess up in our earthly relationships and we need forgiveness and sometimes we need to forgive others. This happens regularly during the week in our lives.
Forgiveness is like a high fiber food for our healthy daily relationship with others. It keeps our relationships with others healthy and our mental health at optimum daily function. If we do not forgive, we lock-up our mental health in a prison of unforgiveness.
Prayer: O Father, help me be a better forgiver to those around me so You can have an even greater smile as you look at me and my relationships. Amen
