Matthew 6:12 (CJB): Forgive us what we have done wrong,
as we too have forgiven those who have wronged us.
We are surrounded by so many people. We enjoy relationships with our family. We enjoy our first few months in our mothers womb. That’s the most wonderful relationship. That’s the first relationship we know.
As we are born then our father is father in reality. Then our siblings come along. The near and far relations come see the newborn.
As we grow, we make friends. Then one particular friendship grows into deeper relationship. That may grow into marital relationship.
Then come kids. Then we realise that none of these relationships were perfect. They don’t have to be perfect. These relationships are purely based on understanding. They need to be worked on.
Forgiveness of each other is the cornerstone. Forgiveness is not at all easy. But, requires lot of sacrifice in terms of to let your ego go.
Did you allow forgiveness to be the first priority in your relationships?
