Matthew 6:14 Daily Devotional
Forgiveness is complete when we forgive the people who hurt us. The Lord forgives us when we forgive others. We’re all in need of forgiveness, and we can be assured that we will receive and have received that forgiveness.
This application isn’t the easiest, but it needs to be done. Forgive someone. Think about someone who you need to forgive and take that next step and connect through a phone call or in-person (never text or email). You can also seek out people you need forgiveness from. This can be difficult, but the payout is worth it.
Maybe you can’t reach the person who hurt you anymore. You can forgive people in your heart and that will be enough. Letting go of the hurt another person has given you can be very powerful whether or not they know they’re forgiven.
Father, help me to forgive others. If there’s anyone I’ve wronged, bring them to mind so I can seek their forgiveness. Bring to mind, also, anyone who has hurt me so I can forgive them. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
