Colossians 3:13 NLT
Why am I writing about a street person? Well as I was meditating this scripture I realized there no one is this world better than the next person. I was in conversation with some people yesterday and we where discussing a colleague,his/her faults. As I was listening I thought to myself that not one making those comments is perfect and faultless. That includes myself. So who are we to judge?
Reading this scripture I realize that rather forgiving loving and reaching out to that person would help more. You should forgive. I don’t mean that you have to condone their behavior and actions. Very different concepts. You can forgive and love. You don’t have to accept bad choices, you can forgive however.
So are we as good as the homeless guy, maybe he has forgiven all? Forgiving releases you and moves you closer to God.
God forgave me!
“ Lord I pray for Your forgiveness. May I forgive those I need to forgive. Guide me Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name. Amen”
