MFM 12 Daily Devotional Sunday June 2022 MESSAGE
Psychologists define forgiveness as a conscious, deliberate decision to withdraw feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness. Forgiveness is a very key quality of being a Christian.
In the Bible, the word forgiveness is mentioned about 129 times. It is also included in the Lord’s Prayer. The story of Joseph is a perfect example of forgiveness. It must have been very hard for him to forgive his brothers, but because Joseph had the love of God in his heart, God made it easy for him to do so.
Joseph’s forgiveness was not only for his benefit, but for the benefit of the future children of the Israelites. If Joseph had not forgiven his brothers, maybe the promise that God gave Abraham about his seed becoming as many as the sand on the seashore might not have come to past.
Forgiveness on its own is not easy, especially when it is people you love the most and hold in high esteem that have offended you. But with God, all things are possible. We should learn forgiveness because we gain a lot when we forgive. When we forgive, our God in heaven forgives all our sins and our prayers are answered.
God’s mercies encompass us round about, and our lives become a testimony to those around us. Remember that unforgiveness is a sin, and it can take you to hell fire.
Beloved, forgiving others is a great way to show that you are an obedient Christian. It is also a good way to demonstrate that the love of God is at work in your life. When you don’t forgive, you imprison the person who has offended you and imprison yourself as well. When you don’t forgive, you allow bitterness and resentment to occupy your heart.
As someone put it, resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies. Be wise; forgive others as Joseph did!
