True Colors

ImageNot one of us is exempt. It is part of everyone’s life. Our geographical location is irrelevant. This is common to all of humanity. All of us at some time will be intentionally or unintentionally hurt by someone. It might be by their inconsiderate verbal remarks or brash physical actions. The fact is others will blow it and usually it will be people close to us like neighbors, friends and family.
 
It is at this point that a critical choice is made. Will we choose the road of resentment and revenge or the path of forgiveness and healing? I believe it is imperative we select mercy. Why?
 
1. Because resentment is unhelpful and unhealthy: 
      “Surely resentment destroys the fool and jealousy kills the simple.” Job 5:2
 
2. Because we will all need forgiveness in the future:
      “But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in  heaven will forgive your sins, too.” Mark 11:25
 
3. Because God has forgiven you:
      “Make allowance for each other’s faults and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember the Lord forgave
      you so you must forgive others.” Colossians 3:13
