Luke 5:23 (NLT) Is it easier to say ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or ‘Stand up and walk’?
Love has many components and dimensions. It’s not all emotion and it often takes great effort. In other words many times love is what love does!
One dimension of love that can require great effort is the act of forgiveness. Love, in its most liberating form, forgives. Forgiveness can be simple, or it can be difficult and complicated. It has its best chance to present itself when one has learned it from a parent over years of observation.
If our children are to be forgiving, their parents must teach them the art of forgiveness. Every day in thousands of ways, children are asking parents, “Do you forgive me?” the hard reality is expectations often lead parents to consciously or unconsciously give the message, “You’re not forgiven.” Forgiveness is taught and learned dimensions of love!
Point to ponder- What message are you communicating to others? Love is what love does great family and friends. Let’s prepare and be ready to model forgiveness family.
