If you have been hurt and disappointed by people many times in your life it is important to forgive.
I know it can be very easy to fall into hate or offense when somebody does you bad but we have to fight this at all costs.
Don´t let anyone bring you into hatred or bitterness and never let your heart grow hard.
There are so many people out there with bitterness and coldness in their faces, untouched by what happens to their neighbors.
Friends we should by no means let hate win over us, love is such a beautiful thing.
Do not close your heart on the whole world because of some people who did you wrong but forgive and pray for them.
Love those who hate you because the one who deserve love the least are the ones who need it the most.
God is love and we are able to love because he first loved us!
Only Jesus can help us to forgive others and keep a loving and compassionate heart.
Don´t walk in darkness but be a light to the world that everybody knows who your father is.
Hatred brings death but from love flows all life!
1 John 4:20
If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.
1 John 2:9
Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness.
Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 John 4:7
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
1 John 4:19
We love because he first loved us.
1 John 4:11
Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
1 John 4:16
So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
1 Corinthians 16:14
Let all that you do be done in love.
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.”
FOLLOW JESUS AND STAY FOCUSED ON HIM ONLY THEN WILL YOU BE ABLE TO HAVE A COMPASSIONATE HEART AND NOT BE OFFENDED EASILY! I KNOW IT CAN BE HARD TO LOVE THOSE WHO HATE YOU BUT WITH JESUS ALL IS POSSIBLE TRUST IN HIM!
PRAYER FOR YOU:
DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER,
I COME BEFORE YOU AND CONFESS ALL MY BITTERNESS, HATRED AND UNFORGIVENESS TO YOU.
I NO LONGER WANT ANYTHING OF IT IN MY HEART SO PLEASE FORGIVE ME.
TURN MY HEART INTO A FOUNTAIN OF LOVE AND HELP ME TO LOVE THOSE WHO HATE ME.
I DESIRE TO LEARN HOW TO LOVE LIKE JESUS.
PLEASE LET YOUR HOLY SPIRIT BE ALIVE INSIDE OF ME AND TEACH ME YOUR LOVE.
CREATE IN ME A NEW CLEAN HEART FILLED WITH LOVE AND COMPASSION.
GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO WITHSTAND ALL TRIALS AND TEMPTATIONS AGAINST MY HEART AND LEAD ME IN YOUR WAYS.
IN JESUS NAME NOW AND FOREVER
