Choosing to love and forgive others sets us free from a negative spiritual bondage. We block our own blessings when we harbor bad feelings against others. Our own lives become messy, and God doesn’t bless a mess. Letting go of anger, hatred, and unforgiveness helps us to live much healthier lifestyles mentally, physically and spiritually. We find that we’re happier, we sleep better, we feel better, we smile more, and we feel better about ourselves.
12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Be blessed, keep God first and keep looking up,
