Weekly Memory Verse: "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven." --Luke 6:37
Forgiveness may be one of God's commands that I struggle with the most. Often, when I say I've forgiven a person, I fail to treat them like they're forgiven, and my heart remains bitter as I continuously recall the hurt. What a truly awful cycle! The giving up of anger and pain, followed by true forgiveness, is a welcome release that pride attempts to hinder. I pray for instant recognition when my pride is surfacing and the forever desire to follow God's command to forgive, as I too need to be forgiven.
