"Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you."
The Lord wants us to live in peace with one another. Have you heard of the saying, "Forgive and Forget"? We need to be quick to forgive AND forget. Here's a little poem by Joanna Fuchs:
Forgive our pride, our love of worldly things.
Have mercy on our love of sensual pleasure,
Compassion on the sins that self love brings.
So very different is your heart and mind.
But wait, I just remembered that you do know
What it’s like to be a part of humankind.
You lived with us so you could comprehend
The things that we go through each trying day,
So you could give us mercy, and be our friend.
Thank you for your love and empathy.
Thank you, Lord, for coming down from heaven
To experience life’s trials, just like me.
