To live a peaceful spiritual life – we cannot hold deep grudges and resentments against others.
We must discontinue harboring anger in this way. Instead, we need tolerance and patience with others, and this comes from a genuine humility – knowing, that we’ve more than likely have acted out in the same way that others might be doing now.
So yes – we forgive ourselves and others around us – we hold our own behavior to a high standard, and yes – we grant leniency to others who are trying to grow.
God doesn’t like ugly – be nice, follow the rules and respect the people around us – it’s a simple, peaceful and successful road to travel.
We are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period.
“They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them” Romans 2:15
