• “If my attitude be one of fear, not faith, about one who has disappointed me; if I say, ‘Just what I expected,’ if a fall occurs, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” – Amy Carmichael

Responsible by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/06/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: One of the first steps toward choosing forgiveness is to clear your conscience toward those who have wronged you. How have you responded to them? Have you blessed them?

“Who’d your dad have with him this weekend?”

Nancy: Have you loved them?

“She’s not my favorite person.”

Nancy: Have you prayed for them?

“I wish he’d just die.”

You’re not responsible for how others have hurt you. But you are responsible for how you’ve responded. Jesus said it this way: “First take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”

Do you want to find freedom from hurt and bitterness? Ask God to give you His love toward those who’ve sinned against you. Clear your conscience with them, and then choose to forgive.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
