Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. – Ephesians 4:32 NIV
I was troubleshooting an issue on my website the other day with a tech support guy and even as tech savvy as I am, I was getting frustrated. I had to step away, take a deep breath, and eat something for breakfast so that I wouldn’t be irritated just because I was hungry.
The Lord wants us to be compassionate. I know what it feels like to be on the other side of the tech support conversation with a person who is impatient and irritated. I had to pause and send peace and ease to the tech support person I was angry with because I know what it is like to be in his shoes.
We have to forgive ourselves for not always being as compassionate as we could. There is always another day to try again. Amen.
