Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
I certainly know how difficult this can be… to forgive others. However, it’s something that I require of you. You can’t just pick and choose which verses in My Word you’ll adhere to, you must obey all of it. The entire Word came from Me and was inspired by Me. Even the areas you want to skim and brush over, are all important and serve a purpose.
So, I ask you to forgive. I know your thoughts and you wonder why you should have to… after all, they were wrong and deserve much worse. I’m telling you… it doesn’t matter how right you may be and how wrong they are. Forgiveness has a purpose for YOU and that’s why I require it. Without forgiving, your heart and mind dwell on these hurtful instances… you then harbor more than unforgiveness, it grows into anger and bitterness, and the it consumes your thoughts… drawing you away from Me. Can you see why I require it now? It should have been enough that I have said it… and, let’s not forget how much I have already forgiven you…
