For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. - Matthew 6:14
This is a challenge, isn’t it? That tricky “if” puts everything in a different light. We naturally believe that we should be forgiven, if we ask, but now we have to stop and become forgivers too. Odd human beings as we often are, we find this hard. It is, since we are being invited to share in a quality rooted in God himself. He obviously thinks we are capable of it.
In prayer, let us ask for the grace to be forgivers, which is so often a daily challenge.
