Happy Sabbath! 🙂

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: (Luke 6:37 KJV)

Sometimes, these may seem to be tiresome tasks.

We find ourselves judging and condemning people and we find it almost impossible to forgive. However, at the same time, we don’t wish people to judge or condemn us and when we do wrong we beg for forgiveness. So why then do we do one thing and expect something different?

And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye. For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. (Luke 6:39-44 KJV)

So before I expect someone to forgive me, I will first forgive all those who have wronged me. Holding onto hurt will only do just that; hurt. Letting go and forgiving is not an easy task but it is definitely not an impossible one.

Even if we think something is impossible to do, just remember you are serving a mighty God.

And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. (Mark 10:27 KJV)
