FORGIVENESS CHALLENGE 3


As humans with blood running through our veins there is always the tendency to not forgive others when they do something wrong to us that hurt us so much!

Have you noticed how painful it is when that person you love so much hurts you? It is when we are hurt that we begin to dig up things they had done in the past just to find the reason to be angrier at them than we ought to be!

Pause and ask yourself if you have never wronged anyone, how would you feel if they keep digging up the dirt that you buried because you don’t want to remember those things? How you feel recollecting those moments is exactly how others feel when you do the same thing to them.

It could be what your friend at school did to you, your friend and colleague at work could have snitched you behind your back because they wanted a favour from the boss. It could be your neighbour who just doesn’t like you because you are pretty and lucky to have wonderful people around you. It could be your child who doesn’t understand how you treat them because they can’t fathom why you keep making them do housework even with the maids around. Then again it could be your husband or wife who gets on your nerve time to time…there are times when you just feel you should pack it up and walk away but that thing called LOVE if you feel it can do wonders…

Hear what God’s words says
 ‘’Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it’s is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.’’ (1 Corinthians 13:4-6)

We just need to find a way around the things we go through and forgive one another because God has commanded us to do just that. It is tough but possible! 

May God give us that indescribable inner strength to forgive others in Jesus name. Amen

Enjoy the new week guys. Xoxo😍

  1. Amen! So true that it's at the point of forgiveness that reason rears it head with justifiable memories not to forgive. In situations like that I get gift that is not convenient to such persons. It works 100% of the time.
