You are Invited

So watch yourselves.  If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them.  Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ you must forgive them.  Luke 17:3-4

Today you are invited to consider what emotion these words Jesus said to His disciples produce in you.  Maybe they make you feel angry, or sad, or frustrated.  Maybe they make you feel so tired you want to give up.  Speak to Jesus about your feelings.  Why do you feel this way?  What are your struggles?  How can He help you overcome them?  Be honest with Him.  He knows you so well that nothing you can say will surprise Him.  Listen for His words of encouragement to you.

May God bless you as you open your heart to Him today.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I do live in the city but make the most of the green spaces that surround me.
