Your Responsibility to Forgive

Forgiveness is a choice, isn’t it? Actually, it’s a responsibility. But it is also a choice. I have a responsibility to forgive, but the choice is mine. I have lived on both sides of the forgiveness fence. I have chosen not to forgive, and I have decided to forgive. The only freedom I have ever found is in forgiveness. Forgiveness is not about how I feel. If it were, I would never forgive. Forgiveness is about obeying the Lord’s command to forgive, and obedience is not about feelings. I choose to obey because I love the Lord, and I want to live the beautiful life He created me to live. Forgiveness allows me to walk in His love that I may live the abundant life Jesus promised me. Today I choose to forgive – everyone and everything with whom and with which I have been upset. Right now. How? With God’s love. I choose forgiveness. I choose freedom. How about you?

Mat 6:9  “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 
Mat 6:10  Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 
Mat 6:11  Give us this day our daily bread. 
Mat 6:12  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 
Mat 6:13  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 
Mat 6:14  For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 
Mat 6:15  But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
