Being humble enough to learn from the past and admit mistakes is important. If we don't, we're at risk of repeating history. I'm amazed by the forgiveness and reconciliation that has happened given the atrocities of the past. This is a testimony that forgiveness liberates our wounded hearts. It still hurts and there is still shame. But we stand together and face a brighter future.
Jesus showed us how to forgive and bring healing to our violent world. When people of any faith forgive and make peace it is a sign that God's Divine nature is written in their hearts and that God's Kingdom is breaking through. May we never grow tired or working toward interfaith and racial reconciliation that brings healing.
Is there anyone you have neglected to forgive?
Is there anyone who you need to ask forgiveness of?
What's stopping you?
God, asking for forgiveness and forgiving others is about the hardest thing ever. I need humility to practice forgiveness. My ego is in the way, but I look to your way.
