Don't Let Your Heart Rot !

"...as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other , whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you." Colossians 3:12, 13
"Not forgiving will rot your heart ~ forgiving before you are asked will set you free." author unknown

A verse for the wise. Could these pictures be from your Hawaii trip?

Such true words and often the ones that are difficult to follow - but following is freeing!

Forgiveness was the sermon at church today, Kathy. Your post is so timely, thank you.

Debbie, yes, they are some of my Hawaii pictures. The trip I took with my 3 younger sisters to celebrate our youngest sister's 50th birthday.

Pondside, I wrote this post for myself, to remind myself of this very basic principle of my faith, and the most freeing.He forgave me, how can I not forgive others?

Sandra ( Thistle Cove),as I grow older I am more & more thankful for His forgiveness, and the gift and grace of being able to forgive. I only hope those who I have hurt are able to forgive me...
