Love Forgives And Forgets
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.1 Corinthians 13:7
No one is perfect. All of us make mistakes. When God's love is living inside of us we should be demonstrating that love to all people we come in contact with whether friends, family, or strangers.
Our mouths often are the source of things that cause hurt feelings, misunderstandings, and broken relationships. When your words have caused confusion or pain it is better to let things go and just pray. Take it from one who some times can't let things go and tries to get last word. The entire chapter of 1 Corinthians 13 is a good chapter for building and maintaining all types of relationships. We can't change another person but God can. What we can do is show love and kindness.
Is there someone you have not been loving to and maybe exchanged some misunderstood words? Perhaps pray and ask God to orchestrate the necessary healing then live showing God's love always.
PRAYER: Lord at times I know I have not shown your love to someone and it breaks your heart. I also need to learn to let go of hurts to me that cause a lack of love. You want me to have the ability to have unconditional love. Help heal any wounded feelings and restore your love. In Jesus' name. Amen.
