When we are around someone who continually hurts our feelings it is hard to forgive them everyday over and over again.
Peter must have had the same problem, in Matthew 18:21, he said to Jesus, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus responded by telling a story of someone who had been forgiven for much but was not being forgiving to the one who owed him.
Put yourself in God’s place and think; how much has He forgiven me?
Has He forgiven you for much?
If God, being holy, can forgive your many offenses against Him, how can you not be like Him and forgive the offenses of another? This is difficult task but one that can be accomplished through humility and prayer.
Father, help us to forgive every day the people who offend us and help us to remember how much You have forgiven us. Thank You for Jesus sacrifice for our many sins, in His name we pray amen
