“If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ you must forgive them.” Luke 17:3-4 New Living Translation


Too many Christians wrongly believe that we are to forget as well as forgive.


We are not computers that we can delete from our minds when someone has done us wrong.


Those who forget to learn from history are dammed to repeat it. Winston Churchill.


When someone has hurt us and there is reconciliation we are to forgive them and move on with the relationship.


Now there will come a time when there is a disagreement and you want to bring up the past.


When that happens, stop!!


Remember that when you sin, you hurt Jesus. He has forgiven you so you must forgive the other man or woman.


However, when you see them begin to return to their old ways that brought about the offence it is your duty to politely remind them of the consequences of the last time.


Think of a naughty child. They refuse to do their chores. The parent refuses to give them an allowance. The child repents and is given their allowance. The next week the child refuses to do their chores. All you have to do is remind them of what happened the last time and they will do their chores.


Prayer: Holy Spirit Rabbi (Holy Spirit our beloved Teacher) thank you for teaching me both forgiveness and how to deal with people who repeatedly offend me in the same manner as Jesus did and does. I give thanks for this precious treasure in the name of the greatest teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.


May the sweet sunshine of Jesus' precious love bless you today and every day.
