Ephesians 4:32 “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each
other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”
This verse speaks of forgiveness and forgiving each other for our wrongdoings. This is
NOT easy for any of us to do, especially if we are a victim of someone else’s wrongdoing.
But we must give this our best effort so we can move on with our lives. By not
forgiving this can cause us misery and anxiety in our own lives. True, we as humans
can find it difficult to forget but we must strive to forgive as this is a commandment. I
believe forgiveness can give the victim and offender a more positive outlook on life.
Prayer: O Lord, please give me the virtue of true forgiveness. Help me to live the commandment
you give us in your prayer. Amen
