Today's Verse: Colossians 3:13

Sunday, June 10, 2018

Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
— Colossians 3:13

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

How can I not forgive a brother or sister for whom Christ died, when I know what God paid to forgive me?

My Prayer...

Holy Father, I commit today to release any grudge or bitterness that I have against one of your children. I am sorry for not reflecting your grace and mercy which you lavished on me. Abba Father, I need the help of your Holy Spirit to relinquish my claim on the wrongs committed against me and to treat those who have hurt me as full siblings in your family. Please empower me as I commit to follow your example in forgiving, even when it is hard. Through Jesus I pray. Amen.
