God wants our hearts. Our humble realization that without Jesus we are sinners and nothing more. I know I hurt Him on a regular basis. But I know that God loves when I come to Him asking for forgiveness.
It really is a great feeling when someone asks you for forgiveness. You feel a sudden burst of great love, compassion, and understanding towards that person. It feels so good to forgive that when forgiveness occurs, the hurt is gone replaced by amazing feelings. Those are God-given feelings.
God knows how it feels to grant forgiveness. And He wants us to get a glimpse of how that feels. Whether you’re asking or forgiveness or granting it, the joy and renewal is rewarding after. Marriage simply won’t work without forgiveness.
Him+Her Weekly Goal
Guilty or not, be the first one to apologize. God rewards the humble.
