It is so easy to be angry with someone who has hurt us in some way. It is also easy to hold on to that anger and feed it every day. Anger causes physical changes in the body. Blood pressure rises, heart rate increases and adrenaline increases. All these things are bad for our health. God calls us to forgiveness. We may not be able to forgive all at once but each day we can work at putting anger away. Forgiveness is healing. We are the ones who are healed the most.
Forgiving God, help us to learn to follow your example. You forgive our waywardness always. Help us to learn to forgive others as you forgive us. AMEN
