In my post yesterday on Five Mistakes I’ve Made in Parenting, I mentioned what a gift from God forgiveness is. Young children, especially, are so quick to forgive us, whether we’ve spoken harshly, lost our temper or expressed frustration toward them.
They are quick not only to forgive, but also to forget. They’re ready to jump right back into our arms and move on to whatever we wish to do next.
What a great trait for us as adults to have. After all, aren’t we to forgive others as God forgave us? He certainly forgives us over and over and His love for us is never changing.
I’m grateful for God’s gift of forgiveness; that which He extends to me, and the ability He gives me to forgive others, if I only will.
