Forgiveness: Making Allowances For Others

Colossians 3:13 NLT, “Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.”

Remembering the forgiveness God has shown us through Christ, is definitely a way to stay humble and forgive others. He has forgiven us of so much, over and over again. Walking in humility means that we will be more willing to remember that everyone is human. Being human means we will all have bad days and sometimes make mistakes. When people do make mistakes, showing mercy and forgiveness to them will promote an atmosphere of love and peace.

Having a forgiving spirit keeps our souls healthy and strong. It also frees us up to keep moving forward in Christ. Unforgiveness holds us back and keeps us in bondage. We must push past the temptation to hold a grudge against others. Instead we must forgive, and then we too will be forgiven by our Father in heaven. (Matthew 6:14).
