“But Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck and kissed him, and wept.”
We all may have a friend or relative that we’ve held a grudge with, like Jacob and Esau had. Twenty one years have passed and here we see that the grudge no longer mattered, they have reconciled and moved on!
“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”
Holding onto grudges not only is a waste of time, but it drags you into sin and bitterness, as you play out scenes that never will happen. Let us forgive and forget like our LORD does when we confess!
“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”
1 Chronicles 16:34
The LORD shows us mercy and grace, so we should do the same! Maybe you have a relationship that has been damaged, seek the LORD on opening a door to make amends! Have a blessed day.
