The Gift of Forgiveness
He (God) is so rich in kindness that he purchased our freedom through the blood of his Son, and our sins are forgiven (Ephesians 1:7, NLT).
Friend to Friend
The holidays have a way of resurrecting old hurts. One of the greatest Christmas gifts we can give ourselves is the choice to forgive those who have hurt us.
Forgiveness is not easy – but it is necessary if we want to experience peace and joy.
Part of forgiveness is releasing the person from the debt we think they owe us. Refusing to do so extinguishes our joy.
