Joshua 9:3-10:43;  Luke 16:19-17:10;  Psalm 83:1-18;  Proverbs 13:4

“If your brother sins, rebuke him,

and if he repents,

forgive him.

If he sins against you

seven times in a day,

and seven times

comes back to you,

and says,

‘I repent,’

forgive him.”

Luke 17:3-4

 

“IF I cast up a confessed,

repented,

and forsaken sin

against another,

and allow my

remembrance of

that sin to color

my thinking and

feed my suspicions,

then I know nothing of

Calvary love.”

~Amy Carmichael, Missionary

Lord God, during this Holy week when we remember Christ’s passion, help us to forgive even as you have forgiven us.  That Christ’s death on the Cross be not in vain.  Increase our faith so that we can forgive those who seem impossible to forgive.  Help us to love with abandon, with no thought for the cost.  May we live in the light of Calvary love, for Jesus’ sake, Amen.
