“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 6:14-15

TODAY’S WORD…

Jesus said, “Yes, if you forgive others their failings, your heavenly Father will forgive you yours; but if you do not forgive others, your Father will not forgive your failings either.”

– Matthew 6:14-15

 

REFLECTION…

A Christian is not a true Christian if there is no will to forgive. Am I that sort of Christian? Is there somebody in my life who I am not prepared to forgive? Am I so determined not to forgive, that I will stick to my decision at any cost?

At any cost? …even in spite of Jesus’ warning that if I do not forgive the failings of others, then the Father will not forgive mine?

At any cost? Am I truly determined not to forgive…even at the cost of losing my soul?

 

QUOTE…

“All right: that person has behaved badly towards you. But, haven’t you behaved worse towards God?” – St. Josemaria Escriva

 

PRAYER…

Lord Jesus, my Saviour,

I think of You on that Glorious Cross of Humility

– the Son of the Living God,

One with the Father,

True God from True God –

and I hear You cry out, “Forgive them, Father…”

 

Lord Jesus,

help me learn from You;

make me more like You;

remove my pride

and fill me with love and forgiveness,

that I too may be forgiven by the Father.

Amen.
