Welcome to week two of the Scripture Challenge!
Have you ever found yourself at the point of someone's bullying/judging? Did your heart feel wrenched with anger, sadness, confusion and humiliation? Why do we judge others? Why is it so easy to assume the worst in people rather than the good? Recently, I was called out by someone who lives in the same area. The woman automatically assumed the worst about my entire family. I don't want to get into the specifics, but I couldn't believe someone could say and assume such rude things. I couldn't tell her what was going on because I was flabbergasted. The rude words were poison to my heart and mind.
Today while I was eating my midnight snack the thought kept coming back,"forgive." Of course forgiving a bully will seem challenging, but through Christ we can do all things. Forgiveness gives everyone the chance to be cleansed of bitterness, anger, hate, sadness and many other emotions. As we forgive we grow closer to Christ and become stronger through love.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
As you can probably tell the theme this week for the Scripture Memorization Challenge is "Forgiveness." Print out this scripture HERE . Have fun memorizing on your own or with your family! God bless!
