“For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”Matthew 6:14 NIV
What happen to real friendship? You know the, I’ll have your back no matter what, when you’re down I’ll lift you up, the we in this no matter what you’re going through kind of friendships?
It’s crazy that society has us thinking that soon as somebody does something we don’t like, we need to cut them off. When somebody hurt our feelings they are a hater or not real.
I know I’m guilty at times. If my friends don’t do what I feel they should be doing I would get angry and not talk to them. Tell them about their selves. Or whatever.
But the word says… “Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ you must forgive them.””Luke 17:4 NIV
That’s deep right…. Meaning, give people a chance. If they are your true friend don’t just write them off because they pissed you off. They are human just like you.
Think about all the times you’ve messed up and somebody forgave you. They let it slide when you missed an important event, forgot to call on a birthday, said something you shouldn’t have said.
I know, it’s easier to point out what somebody else is doing wrong. Rather than looking in the mirror and realizing you mess up to at times….
So take it easy on the people you claim to love. Jesus is love and he is very forgiving!! You should be too!!
Love you ❤️
