Action: Forgive

READ: “and forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us” Lk 11.4.

THINK: Forgiving one’s brother is a condition to receiving God’s forgiveness. It must be from the heart, Mt 18.35, and has no limits, Lk 17.1-10. Forgiveness means regaining a brother and is thus a joyful process, for forgiveness means reconciliation and deliverance, Col 1.14; Eph 1.17.

ACT: Consider offenses as stones in the way to be removed.

PRAY: Father, may my forgiveness be as free and complete as yours.

ASK: Does some brother have something against me, or I against him, so that I should seek forgiveness?
