On Wednesdays, the My Faith and Fitness Blog will feature a passage of scripture and questions to encourage us to reflect on how we can each live a life that pleases God and allows us to fulfill the plans that God has prepared for us.
37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: 38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. ~ Luke 6:37-38 (KJV)
What measurement do we use when we forgive others for the wrongs that they commit against us?
Do we forgive a little, but expect to be forgiven for much? If we want to receive more forgiveness from others than what we issue to others, why aren’t we more forgiving?
What impediments prevent us from forgiving others?
What makes it difficult for us to give our time, talent and treasure in our service to God? What steps can we take to trust that God’s Word is true? How much patience do we have for waiting for our “good measure” to be given to us?
