Colossians 3:13 “Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
Dear heavenly Father, give me a heart that is ready and eager to forgive just as you forgive me. In a small way, as I am deeply hurt by the words and actions of others, I begin to appreciate your forgiveness. For when I am hurt I find it hard to forgive. Yet as much as I hurt, I have hurt you in far greater ways. But you gave me your Son, Jesus Christ, who took away all my sins. Because you have forgiven me I will forgive others. I pray that you help me do this in my life, especially with those who have hurt me. Amen.
