Relationships are worn down by broken promises. It is hard to dust yourself off, offer grace and start again. Yet, we are called to forgive and offer others an opportunity to rebuild trust they have broken. We are all the same—we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Who needs your forgiveness today? Who can you extend grace to and offer an opportunity to reestablish community and relationship?
