Reflect & Refocus #20

How to Make 2015 Your Best Year Ever

#20 – “Forgive!” Just as ‘giving’ is an attribute of the Father, and of His kids…., “forgiving” is another of those things that cannot be separated from God’s nature and our nature, as well. We’re a ‘new creation’ and forgiving is solid evidence of that! To forgive goes against the grain of our fleshly makeup. Most of the time everything in us is screaming for us to retaliate and strike back. After all, we were wronged, wounded, ignored, hurt, etc! Here’s where we should look to Jesus as our example; as they mocked Him and beat Him, He said, “Father forgive them, for they don’t understand what they’re doing.” The bible has much to say about forgiveness; but I say we should Take the advice of Nike….”Just Do It!”

Below are a few of my own quotes on the subject of forgiveness:

It’s never wrong to forgive!    

Forgiveness is not a feeling we have, it’s a choice we make!

When we forgive, a minimum of two people are set free!

Forgive somebody….you’ll both be glad you did!

Being a ‘forgiver’ will lighten your load and enable you to have your Best Year Ever in ’15!
