Scripture of the Day: Zechariah 7:9

This is what the Lord Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another.

Zechariah 7:9

As humans beings, we get our feelings hurt on a daily basis and it’s tempting to hold a grudge against that person as a way to get back for the pain that they caused us. But God has a different standard for us. Just as he shows us mercy for the times we hurt him, we are to show mercy to those who have sinned against us.

Has someone hurt you in a way that you feel like you cant forgive them?

What action can you take today to forgive that person and rebuild that relationship with them?
