Every time you replay a hurt in your mind, it hurts you a little bit more. Reliving a hurt only perpetuates the pain. But releasing the hurt and forgiving the offender is the path to inner peace. Every time the hurt comes back to your mind, bring it to God, ask for his grace, let go of the offense, and leave your hurt on the cross.
“[Love] does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” 1 Corinthians 13: 5
What did God say to you as you read today’s Bible passage?
What word or phrase was most meaningful to you?
How does it apply to your life?
This is where you turn your thoughts into prayer. It could be a prayer of gratitude or praise. It could be a prayer of confession or a request for God’s help. It’s up to you. But take a minute to write a prayer of response to God.
