Forgiveness, Sacrifice, Justice

Romans 12:19
Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.

2 Corinthians 2:10
Now whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ,...

1 John 4:9
In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.

Forgiveness is a two way street. Do it even when you feel an injustice has been done. Do it even when you must sacrifice for the injustice. Do it even when he's your only begotten son. Do it because He did it for us all, that we might live through Him.... Oh, and in case you missed it beloved... Forgiveness is there for OUR OWN sake.

  1. Grateful and forgiving ~
    however, there's always this thought from Mark 6:11

    "And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave, as a testimony against them."
