This Is US: Forgiveness

SERIES:  THIS IS US:  ForgivenessKen Wetmore

Defining forgiveness is not as simple as Googling the definition. Truly understanding and practicing forgiveness is layered, complex, multi-faceted, and often counterintuitive. It is anything but easy. In spite of this, in multiple places in the Gospel Jesus sets forgiveness of our fellow human beings as a condition for receiving the forgiveness of God. The Lord’s Prayer holds the key to this seemingly impossible mandate from Jesus.


This week our #WholeLifeTakeAways were: 

  • Think about a person you forgave. What emotions did you experience when you forgave them? What helped you forgive them?
  • Is there anyone you need to forgive? Where are you on your journey to forgiveness?
  • Is there anyone you need to ask to forgive you? Could you ask them what reparations you could make to them for what you did?
  • How much have you been forgiven for in your life? How does that impact your ability to forgive?
