If you take a moment to consider the times when you have been difficult, you will immediately think of the reasons you were acting that way. Maybe you were short tempered because you were in pain, or you were selfish because you were just trying to get through the day without falling apart so you were unaware of the needs of others, or maybe you were grieving and it caused you to be so self-focused that you acted arrogant.
Do we take the time to consider what someone else is going through when they behave in such ways? Could they be enduring terrible hardships or heartbreaking situations right now?
We are called to kind to those who are unkind, to show love to the unlovable, to be compassionate to those who are selfish and to forgive everyone, always. So let’s be known for giving grace, because none of us deserve that… right? #grace #forgive #BEthechurch #theywillknowwearechristiansbyourlove #shalom #onespiritonechurch #yourjourneytobeingwhole #dailydevotional
