LIVE A LIFE OF FORGIVENESS AND RECONCILIATION

SUB-THEME: PRINCIPLES OF UNLIMITED ADVANCEMENT AND ALL-ROUND FRUITFULNESS


TOPIC: LIVE A LIFE OF FORGIVENESS AND RECONCILIATION


TEXTS: MATT 5:23-24, MK 11:25


The path of forgiveness and reconciliation in a world marked by division, strife, and broken relationships is an arduous task without Jesus Christ.


The principles of forgiveness and reconciliation stand as beacons of hope in the family and church communities. These principles not only mend personal bonds but also propel us towards unlimited advancement and all-round fruitfulness.


Matthew 5:23–24 presents a powerful scene: Imagine standing before the altar, ready to offer your gift to God. But suddenly, you remember that someone holds something against you—a grudge, an offence, an unresolved conflict. What does Jesus instruct? Leave your gift and be reconciled before returning to the altar. This divine directive underscores the priority of reconciliation over religious rituals. It reminds us that our vertical relationship with God is intricately tied to our horizontal relationships with others. Matthew 6:9-12.


In Mark 11:25, Jesus reveals that when we harbour unforgiveness, it hinders our prayers. But when we forgive, the flood gate of unlimited and all-round fruitfulness will abound.


As we reflect on this meditation, let us ground it in our present reality. Think of the conflicts around you, arise, and seek reconciliation through God's grace.


Prayer:

Lord Jesus, ignite our passion for forgiveness and reconciliation.
