As Christians, part of our calling is to reflect the nature of God to the world. In today’s text, Jesus is calling on us to show the same generous spirit of forgiveness that God has lavished upon us.
Have you ever been forgiven of a large debt or of wrong behavior? How did that make you feel to receive that kind of forgiveness? Imagine a weight sitting on your shoulders. Feel the tension in your back as you carry that weight. What does it feel like to have someone help you remove the weight? That is what Christ does for us daily.
Think of someone to whom you can offer the same kind of forgiveness that you have received from God.
