The Fifth Week of Lent – Monday
March 30, 2020
by Jill Duffield, Presbyterian Outlook editor
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
What are you struggling to forgive today — in yourself or in others? Why are you holding on to regret or grievances rather than accepting God’s forgiveness and
opening yourself, your relationships, your communities, to the loving transformation
that accompanies grace and mercy? Is there someone you need to contact to either extend or ask for forgiveness? Do it.
