EXPERIENCE GOD IN SCRIPTURE
Colossians 3:12-15—Since God chose you to be the holy people He loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. (NLT)
Who do you need to forgive today?
How does “harmony” feel like to you when you sense you have it with another person or a group or a team? How can you foster that with someone today?
Jesus, You forgave me by dying for me. And You did that long before I’d even ask for Your grace. Help me today to reproduce that forgiving love with someone else. And for the person I’ve made my enemy (or the one who has made me theirs), I forgive them. Lead me into a redemptive conversation with them, I pray in Jesus’ name, death, and love, Amen.
