COMPLEMENTARY passage: Matthew 18: 21-35; Ephesians 4:30-32
Often offend and are offended, especially within the family, there where establish the most critical relationships, because they are those who demand more of ourselves. By spending more time together, to reflect in the home everything you bring from our childhood and home to our parents, for the trust, by selfishness, by indifference, in general, by the hardness of our hearts, we tend to hurt more frequently and more deeply to those who share their lives with us, in our own family. Often don't notice how much can hurt with our actions, words, gestures, omissions. The truth is that we are contemplating many times without be able to react in time, how the relationship with those we most love, will deteriorate slowly until destroyed.
Needed, if this is happening in your home, take a break, tell the truth, and be willing to seek the final remedy, the cure that will remove the pain, disappointment and loneliness. It is necessary to open our hearts and proceed to its cleaning, confessing the offense and asking forgiveness.
Prayer is a wonderful resource of health given by God, through which we can reach the presence of the father and ask for his direction and wisdom, so that our words are filled with the power that comes from the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives, and are enabled with a genuine desire to forgive and ask for forgiveness.
When we offend God, we have in Christ the mediator that we need to go to your meeting in search of forgiveness. In the same way we do with those whom we have hurt, and those who have injured us; We ask through Jesus to the father, that will allow us to be able to give and receive the forgiveness we need. Forgiveness is the medicine that heals all bitterness, resentment and guilt to our soul.
We decide to forgive and receive forgiveness; we begin to love and we will be loved. All the family members need to live and experience the healing of God in his heart, which is obtained through prayer and forgiveness. This is the best time to express love and affection for those they love, as it is now when they can enjoy it. Thus, when one of them goes to the presence of the Lord, the satisfaction of having given and expressed our best we will have.
WE TALK WITH GOD
"Lord Jesus thank you for allowing us to live one more day, we want to thank you for your forgiveness." Now understand that forgiving us you on the cross, we enable to forgive those who have offended us. Show us who must ask forgiveness because we recognize that we have also failed many times. Removes all bitterness of our lives that they prevent us to enjoy our families and closest, gives us the joy that brings your salvation, Amen".
