Accepting and Offering Forgiveness

As those forgiven by God, we are called to exercise forgiveness. 

As those grace by God, we are called to extend grace. 

Sometimes we ourselves have the greatest need for forgiveness and grace to experience freedom. We may struggle with accepting God’s forgiveness or offering forgiveness to another precisely because we have never been able to forgive ourselves. We know it is the same with grace:  we find it hard to struggle with grace because we find it hard to extend grace to ourselves and others.
