“Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger., and give no opportunity to the devil.” Ephesians 4:26-27
For years I dreamed of writing a book, until I realized it would only have one word in it – forgive. The key to marriage, parenting and family is forgiveness. Do not let the small offenses pile up. Obey the wisdom of God and not give the enemy an opportunity for all manner of sins to take rootby withholding forgiveness. I am by no means an expert or do this perfectly, but I will fight the enemy on this one. And maybe it is because I am overwhelmed by how much I have been forgiven by Jesus, so how on earth could I withhold forgiveness from others?
So as we enter this holiday season, let’s go ahead and decide we will forgive. And when the new year begins, perhaps we will look back and be amazed by all the grace we have received and extend because we have chosen forgiveness.
