This is a picture of what unforgiveness does to us. God wants us to live a full life, to soar to greater heights, but we allow the hurts and offenses of the past to weigh us down.
We have one life to live… forgive. God wants us to enjoy life and build memories with the people He has put in our lives. How many birthdays, anniversaries, reunions have we missed because of the hurt and anger we’ve nursed in our hearts all these years?
As we enter the Christmas season, it is a good time to check our hearts. Have we harboured unforgiveness toward someone? Now is a good time to let go. Forgiving will not make the person who hurt you right, but it will make you free! Free to receive everything God has for you! Free to be who God wants you to be!
Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you
