Life is too Short – Forgive

Life has no guarantee. We’re born and we die, the time between should hold value. Spend as much time with family and friends as possible. I’ve never heard of someone at a funeral wishing for more “things,” only more time! If only to say, I love you or I’ll miss you, to the one lying before them. Don’t wait to make peace, wishing the person could hear you; make peace now while the person is alive! Sadly, many ignore this simple advice.

I know family and friends can be stressful, but the regret will be larger than you think, if you fail to attempt making relationships good. Sometimes you try, and it does not work, but at least you tried! Other times you’ll be shocked because by the harmony gained where you thought it lost.

Forgive, even if you’re not the person wrong! Just forgive! And if you claim Christianity, remember God’s warning to those refusing to forgive: Matt 6:15  “(15) But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” God knows unforgiveness equals hate and no one claiming Christianity can hate those we know and still love God: 1John 4:20  “(20) If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

Who do you need to forgive?
