Scripture for Today

Mark 11:25 "If you have anything against someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins." (Msg)

Thomas Borge was a leader in the struggle against the totalitarian regime that had dominated his country, Nicaragua. During the revolution, Borge was captured and put in prison. While there he was subjected to the most extreme torture for over 500 hours.

After the revolution Borge was freed and become the Minister of the Interior. One day he found one of his torturers in jail. He walked up to this man who had inflicted such terrible, relentless and brutal pain upon him and said, “I am going to get my revenge from you”. He then held out his hand and said, “This is my revenge, I forgive you ".

The best revenge you can ever get as a Christian is to forgive. Forgiveness though it might be the least thing you expect someone who hurt you so badly to get, should be given still. The worst of all is forgiving someone when they are not remorseful or they don't even see the point apologizing. We are commanded to forgive, forgiveness is a prerequisite for us to receive forgiveness from God. Let's make a decision today to forgive totally. 

Prayer: Father, I forgive as many people who have hurt me and even those who will still hurt me.
