This is a different “favorite thing” than yesterday’s call to forgive someone from your past who has dreadfully wronged you.
This, my friends, is a daily choice of power and purpose! Forgive daily!!
“For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.” – Matthew 6: 14 & 15.
Never allow an offense to grow, then to fester and finally to become infected.
When someone pulls in front of you in traffic … bless them in Jesus’ Name!
When your husband forgets your birthday … or to take out the trash …forgive him and fix his favorite meal!
When your mother-in-law steps on your feelings … forgive her and be sweet!
When your best friend talks too much the very day that you are in pain and need her listening ear … forgive her and listen with interest while she jabbers away!
When your pastor’s wife walks by you in church without smiling … forgive her and take her a meal this week!
When your boss overlooks you for the raise or for the bonus … forgive him and work even harder!
Make it one of your most important and significant New Year’s resolutions to forgive daily and forgive quickly. You will feel lighter and healthier than if you had lost 50 pounds!
