The Devotional and Verse of the Day.

— Love in Action

Scripture has a lot to say about the way we treat people. If we have been saved by God, and have been shown the mercy and goodness of God, then we ought to show compassion and integrity to other people. Essentially…

 …what we believe should determine how we act. 
Forgiveness is not just for other people, it's for you too. Forgive yourself, move on, and try to do better next time
All of us who have received grace freely from God ought to also give grace freely to others. In Paul’s letter to the church in Ephesus, he encourages them to be kind and compassionate to others. This idea is spread across all of God’s Word… 
“Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:11 NIV
“…All of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.” 1 Peter 3:8 NIV.
“You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate.” Luke 6:36 NLT 
Showing other people compassion is one of the primary ways that we can communicate God’s love to other people. If we fail to love other people, we also fail to show them God’s love. 

Paul also says we should forgive others, just as Jesus has already forgiven us. Forgiveness and compassion go together. When we do not forgive others, we fail to show them the same compassionate love that Jesus has shown us. 
There are few things in life that cannot be resolved with kindness. Forgive the one that hurts you and you will find forgiveness back in some way or the other
A love that, as it suffered for us and because of us, still allowed Jesus to say, "Father, forgive them—because they don't know what they're doing." We should be careful not to deny others the same love we’ve been freely given. 

If you want to learn more about being kind, compassionate, and forgiving toward others, you can read through the stories of Jesus’ life and ministry found in the books Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. 
But right now, take some time to think about the people in your life who you may have the opportunity to show compassion. Is there someone in need who you can help? Is there a person you can forgive? Is there someone who you can encourage? 
Be kind enough to have forgiveness in your heart
Today is a great day to show people the same love, compassion, and forgiveness you have received.
Respect comes with in

A Prayer For Forgiving Others 

God, thank You for choosing to forgive me. I don’t deserve Your forgiveness, but I know You are good and loving. I want to be like You, and because You have forgiven me, I want to forgive others. Help me each day to remember Your gift of forgiveness and release my anger towards those who have wronged me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Peace be with you; thank you for stopping by, take care, and God bless! 
Appreciate every day;
