Forgive As God Forgives

Key Verse

“Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.” Colossians 3:13

Text — Colossians 3:12-17


Sam cherished his tool box very much. He had saved a lot before he could have enough money to buy the tools. Harry, a younger friend visited him and the next day, Sam discovered that the tool box was gone!

Sam ran out of the house in anger to find Harry. His mission was to fight and make Harry’s life miserable. As he turned the corner, he saw Harry coming and they both stopped. Harry held up the tool box and said “I want to return this. I stole it, I am sorry. I hope you can forgive me. I will understand if you never want to be my friend again”

They stood there for a long time, looking at each other. Then Sam said “you are my friend, I forgive you”. He then took the tool box from him and went back home. Jesus has forgiven all of us. The least we can do is to forgive as He also forgave us. Whatever your parents, siblings, friends, classmates or neighbours might have done to hurt you, ask God for grace to forgive them.
