In spite of how hard you try to avoid it, you’re not going to get through today without hurting someone. Probably a number of someones. Likewise, as much as you try to avoid it, you’re not going to get through today without being hurt by someone. Again, probably a number of someones. That’s why God makes the two sides of forgiveness so important. You need to forgive others when they hurt you – really and truly forgive them regardless of how difficult it is. You also need to forgive yourself when you hurt others – really and truly forgive yourself regardless of how difficult it is. If you can’t, you’re going to carry around anger and resentment that will poison your relationship with yourself, others and even God. So begin today by opening your heart to God who can’t wait to help you turn today into a forgiveness day.
