Today's Bible Verse:

Colossians 3:13

... bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: Forgive as the Lord Forgave You

Bearing with one another and forgiving isn't easy. But I have found that when I begin to pray for the person who has wronged me, God gives me new eyes to see and a new heart to care for that person.

As I pray, I start to see that person as God sees them, and I realize that he or she is precious to the Lord.

I also see myself in a new light, just as guilty of sin and failure as the other person. I too am in need of forgiveness. If God did not withhold his forgiveness from me, why should I withhold my forgiveness from another?
