FamilyLife Blended® Minute
Forgiving an Enemy
Okay, let's face it some people are just easier to forgive than others.
About the Guest
The ease with which we forgive others is in part determined by the size of the offense and who it is, right? Many consider their ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, or ex-spouse an enemy. Jesus specifically told us to pray for our enemies, even more to love them. One great way to love them is to forgive them, just as the Lord has forgiven you. Maybe pray this, "Lord, in response to your forgiving mercy, give me a grateful heart, so much so, that I am able to forgive those who have hurt me." Amen.
