“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 6:15

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“If you do not forgive others,

then your Father will not forgive the wrongs you have done.”

.

– Matthew 6:15 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

A God who forgives is a wonderful God.

But if God, who is thrice-holy, has mercy on the sinner,

how much more ought we to forgive others.

.

No one on earth is perfect.

In the same way as God loves us, even though we have defects,

and forgives us,

we should love others, even though they have defects,

and we should forgive them.

.

If we wait to love people who have no defects,

we shall never love anyone.

If we wait until others mend their ways or apologise,

we will scarcely ever forgive them

…with the consequence that we ourselves will never be forgiven.

.

“If you do not forgive others,

then your Father will not forgive the wrongs you have done.”

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“All right: that person has behaved badly towards you.

But, haven’t you behaved worse towards God?”

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Father, I love You and I need Your love, and I desire Your forgiveness.

Father, I want to do Your will.

Father, with the help of Your grace, I forgive.
