    “Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee” (Matthew 18: 33)? C.H. Spurgeon noted thus: “To be forgiven is such a sweetness that honey is tasteless in comparison with it.

    But yet there is one thing sweeter still, and that is to forgive. As it is more blessed to give than receive, so to forgive is a stage higher in experience than to be forgiven. To be forgiven is the root; to forgive is the flower.” Forgiveness is a virtue that distinguishes a true Christian from hypocrites and unbelievers.

    Christ, our perfect example, showed us the way by forgiving those who crucified Him. He prayed God to forgive them because they did not know what they were doing. The martyr, Stephen, full of love and compassion, also did a similar thing (Acts 7: 57-60).


     We are expected to love and forgive those who offend us as Christ has forgiven us. Pray for those who persecute or hate you. Never revenge rather, leave vengeance to God. Forgive your debtors. Remember, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercyâ (Matthew 5:7).

    Challenge: Forgive and forget.
    Prayer: Give me the grace to forgive, Lord, Jesus.
    Quote: Forgive your debtors.
    Bible Reading in one Year: Matthew 5: 7; 18:24-35.
