Who doesn’t want to have great relationships? A few days ago I read something that I believe is very true.
It is the key to great relationships.
“Forgiveness involves extending love and mercy to someone who has wronged you or hurt you. It clears the way to
reconciliation and restoration of a relationship. When we realise how much God has forgiven us and how great is
his mercy, we can more easily forgive those who hurt us and extend mercy to them. This is the key to great relationships.”
God’s mercy is new every morning and we can make a fresh, new start every single day. I think we can make a conscious decision,
not to hold a grudge against the other person but to forgive and make a new start – over and over again. I guess it is our own pride or hurt
if we don’t do it – or what do you think?
