Pray to Forgive

Day 19 - FORGIVENESS. In this life, people will say things and do things to upset you. Learn to forgive. For many, they honestly don't realize what they said or did was wrong. It may be because of their upbringing, their culture, their surroundings, lack of education etc. Some really just don't know. Then you have those knuckleheads who know they are wrong but just don't care. Those type people are usually hurt people looking to hurt someone else. They just need some love. Then you have people you may have hurt in some type of way or bad choices you may have made... that you need to be able to forgive yourself. 

Pray to forgive. When you forgive, forgiveness clears your mind and frees your soul; it gives you peace to move forward. 

My favorite scripture about forgiveness is found in Luke 23:34... when Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." So when I need to forgive someone who has wronged me in some type of way. I think about that scripture and I forgive them for they know not what they are doing. If I did something and realize later it was wrong, I apologize to whomever and forgive myself. So that I don't have to walk around in guilt; it frees me to be me. 

Pray to forgive those who have wronged you; so that you can be free to live freely and not in bondage to anyone. Pray to forgive yourself for all the bad choices you may have made in the past.When you grow, you learn. When you know better, you do better. Pray to forgive.
