Forgiving on the Fly
by Berni Dymet
Luke 6:37 Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven...
I used to wonder what the big deal is about forgiving people. Jesus talks an awful lot about that. In fact He said that God will only forgive us to the extent that we forgive other people.
That's pretty direct you know.
But if you think about it - if we were all really good at this forgiving thing - there wouldn't be any wars. And the more I thought about it and the more I lived it - well, what I discovered was that it takes the stress out of life.
For me - I've come up with this concept of forgiving on the fly. Some people - I just know their particular weakness. So I forgive them before it hits me. And others, they throw a curved ball and I forgive them while I'm still reeling.
You know something - it works. It really works. I spend much less time insisting on my rights and getting upset with other people. Jesus is cool.
