Living as God’s chosen

Accepting mercy’s grace

Forgiveness, divine gift

Choosing love to embrace


Filling self with kindness

Blessing this very day

Forgiveness, without strings

Following Father’s way


Bearing with each other

Sharing God’s priceless gift

Forgiveness, pass it on

Healing each heart adrift


Receiving peace of Christ

Dwelling deeply within

Forgiveness, Spirit fills

Transforming life of sin


Praising with gratitude

Walking with humble steps

Forgiveness, life’s center

Repenting each misstep

From Colossians 3:13-14:  “Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.  Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.”

  1. God forgave us without strings and so should we likewise forgive others. So often in the past, I have said to myself that I could forgive a person IF they did something or said something. But God reminded me that He didn’t require anything of me, that Jesus died for me while I was still a sinner. Nowadays, I just forgive, knowing that we are all weak humans making our way through life on earth as we move toward our ultimate destiny. You said it all much more clearly and profoundly than I ever have!

  2. Forgiveness does include a number of other attributes: love, grace, mercy, kindness, humility etc.–just as you’ve highlighted here. I never noticed that before. Forgiveness is like the final exam for all those other traits! If we can sincerely forgive, we’re on our way toward true maturity.
