Okay doing some more thinking today. So I was thinking who do we forgive? It says in the Bible to forgive the people you are angry with so that your Father in heaven will also forgive your sins. So what does that mean for us. Sure it is easy to say forgive but can you do it? Can you forgive the crazy drunk that killed a baby? Can you forgive the person who sexually abused you? Can you forgive the mass-murder that killed thousands? We are told that we have to forgive, as Jesus did, no matter what.
So now what about are friends? Do you stay loyal no matter what they have done? Should you be friends with only Christians, as to not fall astray? The Lord hates evil thoughts but is pleased with kind words. Proverbs 15:26. John stayed by Jesus’ side at the cross, although consorting with this man was a crime. Would you stick up for your friends no matter what or would you have a limit? I know I’ve lost many friendships along the way because of different beliefs. I do forgive, even the tough situations. I pray for people who are evil to find the light and do Godly things.
I leave you with this:
Love each other deeply, because love will cause many sins to be forgiven. Open your homes to each other, without complaining. Each of you has received a gift to use to serve others. Be good servants of God’s various gifts of grace. 1 Peter 4:8-10
Now tell me your story-
