Advent Change: Forgive

And…one of the greatest changes represented in Jesus was God’s forgiveness of sins…as well as God’s revelation that the best way for us to live is to forgive the real and perceived trespasses of others…to forgive not for their sake alone but also, maybe especially, for the sake of ourselves.

Happy Endings

So God’s good news as found in today’s passage is simply this: whenever you choose to follow God’s will for you instead of your own harmful feelings and desires, whenever you choose to let God guide the direction of your life instead of letting the pain of your past and the pain of what others have done to you guide the direction of your future, whenever you decide to let go of all the justifications you have for why it’s ok to hold on to anger and hate because, by golly, that mean person who hurt you DESERVES it, then, THEN, you will enjoy contentment in life, then you will enjoy life and every single moment of life as a gift and blessing instead of a curse.
