The Double-Edged Sword of Forgiveness

by ggerhauser

Morning Thought: Did you know forgiveness is a weapon against darkness? The double-edged sword of forgiveness cuts to pieces the evil one’s attacks. First, seek personal forgiveness from God through repentance. Before thinking about other people’s debts to you, realise you have deeply hurt God and others. Then from this place of humility, forgive those who’ve sinned against you. Put the emphasis on your own need for forgiveness and forgiving others will come naturally. “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” (Matthew 6:12, NIV).
