Daily Bread for Tomorrow
Thu. Jun 20, 2013: 2 Cor 11:1-11; Matt 6:7-15
But if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your transgressions. God looks with love and mercy on both saints and sinners. It’s ridiculous and selfish to think that we can call on God in our weakness and pain while refusing to reconcile with others who similarly reach out to us. Our actions toward our brothers and sisters will likely be met by a corresponding action at the final judgment. We certainly do not want God to treat us as we truly deserve; therefore, we must not treat others as we think they deserve, but as God wants them to treated. For the power to forgive, we pray.
