30 Day Encouragement Challenge: Day 20

Standard

Be an Agent of Forgiveness



Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another,                                                    as God in Christ forgave you. –Ephesians 4:32

It’s time for some heart examination. As you continue in this 30-day challenge, have you found any roots of bitterness that are contaminating your relationship with your husband? Do you understand that as long as you are unwilling to forgive your husband-by God’s grace and His power-you will not be able to encourage him? Your own resentment will keep getting in the way. Now is the time to deal with any unforgiving attitudes. Forgive him, even as God has forgiven you.

Is your husband a forgiving man? Does he keep short accounts of your problems? Express your thankfulness for such a man.

Does your husband-rightly or wrongly- harbor grudges against you? Again, are these things you need to change, or do you need to ask for his forgiveness for an offense? Help your husband be more forgiving by quickly forgiving him for his mistakes.

“You’re never more like Jesus, you’re never more like God, than when you are forging and pursuing reconciliation.” -Nancy Leigh DeMoss
