Colossians 3:13 NIV
“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”

Grievances and hurts are crippling to carry! “As the Lord forgave you” means freely, undeservedly, at great personal cost, with extravagant love……….this is the model for our relationships and from forgiveness springs joy and freedom. Worth trying!

Lord, help me to see how you have forgiven me so that I can bear with others today.
