Today’s Inspiration: Forgive as the Lord forgives you. Colossians 3:13. Not all unforgiveness is aimed at others. There is a tendency to suppress unforgiveness of self, leading many times to depression. Have you ever wondered that you have forgiven wrongs of others and still feel restless and struggling? Just as our Father is pleased when we forgive others, He is delighted when we unshackle ourselves from the guilt we carry around.
When you seek to help the one you love overcome their unforgiveness, you may like to examine your own heart and see if there is some hidden resentment buried within. Once detected besides forgiving others, forgive yourself too for harboring an unforgiving spirit of self. Then praise the Lord for His mercy and forgiveness towards you.
Prayer: Lord kindly unveil the root of my problem and help me to forgive myself just as I forgive others for their wrong accusation. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
