A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.
Proverbs 19:11 (NIV)

Consider how easily you become offended. Next time the temptation comes your way, take the high road and overlook it. You’ll waste more energy being offended than if you just forgive and move on.

So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
John 8:31,32 (ESV)

What sin enslaves you, from which you need freedom? Seek the truth, and be set free!

Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?”
Matthew 18:21 (ESV)

If forgiveness was easy, chances are Peter would never have asked this question. As hard as it may be at times, offer forgiveness as God offers it to you.

For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night.
Psalm 51:3 (NLT)

Just as we know our own sin and rebellion, so does God. And He forgives us. Be thankful for His mercy, joyful for His forgiveness and diligent to live a life in constant thanksgiving for His grace.

“Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, and walk’?”

And the twelve were with him, and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, and Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s household manager, and Susanna, and many others, who provided for them out of their means.
Luke 8:1b-3 (ESV)

Imagine this gaggle of diversity. A doctor, a tax collector, fishermen, a woman of political influence and another from whom evil spirits were recently expelled. If you ever feel like you don’t quite fit in, rest assured, you’re in good company.

Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.”
Matthew 18:21,22 (ESV)

Even Jesus’ closest companions wanted to know when enough was enough, when they could be done forgiving. Keep in mind, the letting go frees you as much as it does your offender.
