It is about daily taking stock of our relationship with God and with others.
It is taking responsibility for our part it our relationships.
It is about receiving grace from God, and giving grace to others.
It is about living forgiven and living a life of forgiving.
Jesus showed us how to forgive and then said, “follow me.”
Forgiveness always feels like a sacrifice and it is.
It is a sacrifice that sets you free to live the life God has called you to.
It allows you to be responsible for yourself and release others to be responsible for themselves.
