8-8-14 Always

forgive them

To be forgiven you must first forgive,

But your forgiveness does not set a goal.

Would you have life but rather fully live?

I tell you one is half, the other whole.

Forgive each other with no end in sight,

With no condition, no demands or doubt.

If Christ’s pure love would live in you forthright,

Give all your brothers’ sins to God throughout.

You often hear ‘Forgive but not forget.’

How long would you survive if God did this?

If you keep tabs you’ve not forgiven yet.

Forgetting comes with following your bliss.

Your bliss should be to let Christ live in you.

He’ll lead you to forgiveness always new.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then Peter came up and said to him,

“Lord, how often will my brother sin against me,

and I forgive him? As many as seven times?”

Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times,

but seventy-seven times.”

Matthew 18: 21-22 ESV

  1. Love much because we were forgiven much! Luke 7:47
    We need to lose count of people sinning against us.
