A Gift of Forgiveness

Colossians 3:13
Why is forgiveness such a hard thing to give sometimes? Is it because we’re stubborn and want to hold on to that anger? Maybe forgiving makes us admit we are at fault also. We are told in scripture that we are to forgive as we have been forgiven by God. We can’t make the mistake of holding on to a grudge when we feel someone has wronged us and expect God to forgive us when we do something wrong. Our anger and bitterness will only rob of us of our joy. If Jesus forgives us no matter what we do, the least we can do is forgive others. With the gift of forgiveness you will find the peace that God is waiting to give you. God loves ya! 🙂  Karen Chappell
