SCRIPTURE READING: Psalm 133
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” – Psalm 133:1
Forgiveness is very vital for sustaining a harmonious friendship or relationship. This is because the people close and most dear to you are the same people who often times hurt you. And it is that hurtful because you trust them and least expect their actions. Sometimes, the pain or damage caused is beyond healing or repair and we take a decision never to forgive.
We sometimes wish we would never cross paths with them again. It may be in the form of a betrayal, neglect, deceit, false accusation, mockery, disloyalty, prejudice, misconception, or anything you can think of. Whatever the case is and however painful it may be, we need to forgive one another so we can live together in harmony. Then only can we enjoy our blessings and be refreshed as by the dew of Hermon.
Who has wronged you a minute, an hour, a day or several days ago? Make an effort to forgive the person today. And who have you wronged? Seek forgiveness. Bridge every gap and attract the oil of Aaron and the dew of Hermon into your life today.
• Can I forgive the one who hurt me so badly?
• Will the person I wronged forgive me if I ask for forgiveness?
Dear God Almighty, help me to forgive all those who wrong me. And please grant those I have wronged the grace to forgive me when I seek forgiveness from them. I pray in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Never does the human soul appear so strong and noble as when it foregoes revenge, and dares to forgive an injury. – Chapin
