Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of His inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. – Micah 7:18
When someone we worked hard for in the past hurts our feelings, it’s tempting to stay angry and hold a grudge against that person.
God expects us to show mercy the way He would show mercy to us. He pardons our sins, and we can be thankful for the mercy He shows us. Isn’t it also good to mirror His character and let go of anger and resentment?
Forgiveness helps us heal. We may not forget the lesson we learned as a result of whatever happened, but we can thank God for allowing that lesson to come into our lives. When we practice mercy and forgiveness, we become a little more like Him. Amen.
