Readings: 
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Matthew 6:14-15
14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Thought: One burden we often carry around with us is the burden of wrongdoing, either things we have or that others have done to us or those we love. God wants to take that weight from us too! To do so he has given us the gift of confession and forgiveness. Is there someone we need to forgive today or is there something we need forgiveness for? Why carry that burden any longer than you have to, deal with it now.

Prayer: Thank you that you have freed us to focus on love rather than resentment. Teach me to be forgive and be forgiven.
