October 12–One-Anothering Daily Devotional -Day 12

FORGIVE ONE ANOTHER
…and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. Colossians 3:13 [KJV]

A “One Anothering” Thought
Forgive means:

to cease to feel resentment against
to pardon an offense or an offender
to cancel an indebtedness or liability of

We believers should always forgive one another.
We should not hold onto offenses against one another.
We should pardon one another and not hold a grudge.
We should not resent one another, but should settle our differences quickly, so we can walk together in love.

ONE-ANOTHERING IN ACTION:
Our human nature will cause us to feel resentments or take offenses, but God says we are not to walk in the flesh, but in the way of the Spirit, forgiving one another and loving one another. Daily, we must do our best to forgive our brothers and sisters, as Christ has forgiven us.

…forgive the person who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Colossians 3:13[NLT]
