In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
I am thankful for this grace, which covers me no matter how I succeed or fail. I know I have God’s forgiveness because He loves me. God loves and forgives all of His children. My job, to forgive those who wrong me, or who wrong others, is tiny In comparison. I must simply have a forgiving heart, which goes to forgiveness first and not after much cajoling and several reminders. Forgiveness should be my first and last response when I am wronged.
Father God, Thank-you for your gift of graceful forgiveness. May I be as generous to others, in Your name, Amen
