God expects us to forgive

Daily Thought

Your Word for 21 June 2024

Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

Again and again in the Bible we see that God expects us to be forgiving people. If God expects us to forgive, why would we feel it is better to hold on to our offence and Unforgiveness?

Jesus set the greatest example. As He was hanging on the cross fro a crime He had never committed, He spoke out forgiveness when He said: ‘Father forgive them for they know what the do’.
Here are some scriptures that remind us that God expects us to forgive others.

Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God has forgiven you.
Colossians 3:13 Be gentle and ready to forgive; never hold grudges. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
