The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
I hope you’re all hanging in there. By my count, this is Week 8 of the “COVID 19 Shut Down.”
This week’s Holy Habit is vital to your survival: FORGIVENESS.
Take a tour with me through some of my dirty laundry, minus the smell, and I’ll teach you 5 Steps I’ve found to be essential for my forgiving others, and myself.
Here are this week’s 3 O’Clock Circle Questions:
1. If you hold onto a grudge and refuse to forgive, what are some negative consequences you and others experience?
2. If you practice the Holy Habit of being QUICK TO FORGIVE, who benefits? How so?
3. Review our 5 Forgiveness Steps.
When someone hurts you, walk this way:
Forgive – Every time you feel the offense or think about it, ask the Holy Spirit to help you forgive again, and again, 70x7 times forgive.
Remember - Taking these steps of forgiveness will set YOU Free! It’s worth the work it takes.
In the meantime, I hope you’ll remember to be QUICK TO FORGIVE every time you do your laundry or someone you love dumps all their dirty laundry on you.
See you next week!
