Forgiveness is one of the greatest gifts God gives us. A friend of mine once stumbled on a sign that read:
If we had needed healing, God would have sent a Physician.
If we had needed knowledge, God would have sent an Educator.
If we had needed information, God would have sent a Scientist.
If we had needed money, God would have sent a Banker.
Because we needed forgiveness, God sent a Savior.
God not only freely offers complete forgiveness but challenges us to humble our hearts and completely forgive those around us. Only then can we truly experience the freedom that walks hand-in-hand with forgiveness.
Remember this truth today: You are wholly forgiven by God. The slate has been completely wiped clean. [Tweet this] Remembering how much God has forgiven you will strengthen you to extend forgiveness to others.
-Margaret Feinberg, God’s Living Word
