Love Forgives

Colossians 3 13

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:13

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

In all our relationships, whether it’s with a friend, family member or spouse at some point one of us may do something to make the other angry or hurt each other’s feelings. We’re not perfect and we make mistakes. It may be something small or something really big, either way it’s how we handle these offenses that determines how the relationship will proceed. It takes genuine forgiveness to make a relationship work and survive. God has forgiven us of all our sins both big and small and He expects us to forgive others as well.

God’s Love Never Fails

Psalm 73 26

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 73:26

My flesh and my heart may fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

We are not perfect, we make mistakes and we fall to temptations and tribulations.  No matter how much we want to do better we sometimes fail, we sometimes let God and ourselves down.  But we serve a loving God and no matter how many times we fall, He picks us up.  He continues to love us because His love never fails.  He loves us not because of who we are but because of who He is.  Although we don’t have the strength to carry on ourselves, we have strength through God who is our ever present, never failing refuge for all eternity.
