Ephesians 4:32 KJV
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
A verse we all need to be reminded of sometimes when it is so easy to forget these things if we have been really hurt or treated unkindly by others. Easier said than done I know! Often I have struggled with this concept of forgiving someone. Then I experience a time when I have hurt someone that I care deeply for and I am so sorrowful; I pray that person will forgive me for what I have said or done. It is then that I understand fully what it means to forgive another. I pray:
Thank you Lord for your forgiveness of me for my sinful nature. Continue to guide me with your Word and teach me to be a better person and to treat others the way I wish to be treated,
