What promises of recovery have come true in your life?
That was the question asked in our men's open share group at Pratt Celebrate Recovery this past Monday night. In the middle of answering that question by talking about the promise of forgiveness from God as we forgive others (Matt. 6:14-15) and the freedom I found when I forgave the man who abused me, this thought popped into my head:
"Forgiving others isn't about our relationship with them as much as it is about our relationship with God."
If we can't forgive others - or won't - we are damaging our relationship with our Father in Heaven. We cannot enjoy intimacy with him until we forgive our brother or sister from our heart.
Something for all of us to consider!
