BE KIND AND COMPASSIONATE TO ONE ANOTHER,
FORGIVING EACH OTHER, JUST AS IN CHRIST GOD
FORGAVE YOU.   (EPHESIANS 4:32 *NIV)

Dear Friend,
It is easy for us to ask God for forgiveness, but we often
find it very difficult to forgive others.  Therefore when you
find yourself angry with someone and thinking about revenge,
remember that it is written; 
DO NOT TAKE REVENGE, MY
FRIENDS, BUT LEAVE ROOM FOR GODS WRATH, FOR
IT IS WRITTEN: “IT IS MINE TO AVENGE; I WILL REPAY,
SAYS THE LORD!”   ( ROMANS 12:19 )

After all our Savoir Jesus Christ gave us this warning as
well; 
“FOR IF YOU FORGIVE MEN WHEN THEY SIN
AGAINST YOU, YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER WILL ALSO
FORGIVE YOU.  BUT IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE MEN
THEIR SINS, YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER WILL NOT
FORGIVE YOUR SINS.”  ( MATTHEW 6:14-15 )

Therefore; FORGET THE FORMER THINGS; DO NOT
DWELL IN THE PAST. ( ISAIAH 43:18 ) 
For the
past is gone and no one can change it anyway!   All we can
do is make today the best that we can by forgiving our enemies,
just as God has forgiven us!.

So Friend why not make peace with those who may have
angered you, remembering the Words of our Savior Jesus
Christ; “BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS: FOR THEY
SHALL BE CALLED THE CHILDREN OF GOD!”   Amen.
( MATTHEW 5:9  )

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
