To Forgive

Who am I to judge and overlook my unloving tendencies of anger and lack of servant hood? Forgiveness comes when we see our own unrighteousness. How can we refuse to forgive and offense when we, too, have offended? Jesus's words of warning ring loud: "Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged. ... Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?" (Matthew 7:1-3)

Forgiving is the direct opposite of judging. Nothing is easier than judging, nothing is harder than forgiving, and nothing can reap more blessings.
