Cutting Some Slack
- 2015 3 Jul
I’ve written a lot on the topic of forgiveness and ‘cutting others some slack.’ Generally speaking, I find that most people are doing the best they can and really need grace from us. Scripture says, “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32). Who in your life needs a little extra TLC? Who are those in your immediate circle that could use a thoughtful word, or perhaps even an extra measure of grace? Remember, to the degree that we are forgiving we will be forgiven. Do you need slack from anyone today? How about giving it first?
