I’ve made the mistake of forgiving endlessly, because the command is to do it seventy times seven.
The key is to be in a situation where the forgiven KNOW that it is being done for the Kingdom’s sake.
Forgiveness must be understood and appreciated.
To forgive because you are a nice person is to expend the forgiveness on a lust for approbation.
To live life in a way that evidences that everything that doesn’t matter really doesn’t matter to you is to have cracked the code.
Devoid of the entrapments of the modern life, we must look out of our mind. I cannot recall a single scripture where Jesus texted.
99% of what we believe is true is utter nonsense.
I’ve see ‘devout’ and ‘fervent’ Christians espouse nonsense about God.
I have yelled and been yelled at.
I hurt as much as I have caused hurt.
We have developed a low tolerance for correction.
When our best friend, the Holy Spirit, corrects us, it smarts.
But God doesn’t need to sweet-coat his whispers.
Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
Say "I Do" to Jesus, and entrust yourself to Him. He doesn’t carry a laundry list of "qualifications". No matter how disqualified you think you are, The Great Bridegroom will always say:"Welcome, You’ll do."
