With the recommended social distancing in recent weeks, and for some, selfisolation, we are almost forced to take a look at our relationships, especially with those closest to us. Police officers are reporting more relational tension in homes. Others, who are alone, have more time to consider the pain of broken relationships.
If I were to ask the question, “How many of you have been hurt by someone?” all of you would have to answer “yes.” And, because we have all been hurt by someone, Jesus’ words on forgiveness and restoration apply to all of us. This is definitely an “Everyday Struggle.”
Why is it so critical that we forgive?
