Let me ask you some questions. Who is it in your life that needs mercy? They are barely hanging on? And they’re about to let go? You need to show them some mercy this week.
Who is it in your life that you’re still holding the past over their head? You won’t let them off the hook. Every time they do something you don’t like you bring this back up for ammunition. It’s always silently there in the background. That’s a great way to kill a marriage. You’re unpleasable. No matter what they do for you, you remember the past. You have a little scale in your mind. No matter what they do for you, you keep on reminding them of this. You’re destroying your own marriage. You’re doing it yourself.
Who is it that you need to say a word of forgiveness to this week. You need to let him off the hook, wipe the slate clean, never mention it again. It”s over, it’s done with, it’s forgiven. That’s it! Be happy! Show mercy!
Just a thought from the front porch…
