Commit to a spiritual practice
1. Write out a confession in your journal. Confess the things you have done or left undone. Be honest. End it by sincerely asking for God’s forgiveness. God knows your faults and failings—you will not be telling God anything God does not already know. The exercise is for your benefit, not God’s!
2. Set aside an hour this week to consider your views on forgiveness. How much of your understanding of forgiveness is based in Scripture and how much comes from our cultural influences? Use the concordance in your bible and look up passages that speak of forgiveness. Allow God to teach you something about forgiveness that you don’t already know.
3. What do you need to do to forgive someone? Allow the Holy Spirit to guide your actions. Spend 10 minutes each day in prayer asking for the ability to forgive a past hurt. Might you make a phone call...write a letter...or invite a face-to-face conversation this week?
