490: REVISITED

Spring time must be ‘forgiveness time’ because I wrote about forgiveness around this time last year too! 70×7= 490…The number of times we are supposed to (daily) forgive those who offend us according to Matthew 18:21-22.

I am so thankful for the new mercy and fresh forgiveness that God bestows upon me every morning. Fathoming the thought of having only 490 second chances in life is harrowing. With 365 days in a year, I would have never even made it to my teens!

From our hearts, forgiveness should be a open highway with no traffic jams or accidents. We must consistently and intentionally eliminate offense, from both external and internal sources, leaving no room for Satan to promote resentment. Unforgiveness whether it is directed inwardly or outwardly imprisons us, letting the regret/pain go is a win-win situation, with no losers!

Until Thursday,

Happy Mother’s Day to you and/or your mother! Hope it was a special day!
