We have talked about how we are called to forgive those who have hurt us, and to seek forgiveness from other people and from the Lord for the things we have done. This Sunday we will consider another important aspect of forgiveness: forgiveness within ourselves. There are times when other people may have forgiven us and the Lord certainly has but we still beat up on ourselves and we can’t seem to let it go. The Lord can help us to understand why this happens and help us to get free.

We have all needed to be forgiven at one time or another. It’s tempting at these times to think a simple andquot;I’m sorryandquot; will suffice. But when it comes to forgiveness andquot;sorryandquot; just doesn’t cut it. Although when we say sorry it may be heartfelt it does nothing to change us or our situation. It is when we recognise our fault and make an effort to change that we can receive real forgiveness.

This Sunday we begin the Practicing Forgiveness programme with a question: andquot;Why Forgive?andquot; Why should we forgive people who have hurt us? What is it about forgiveness that is so essential to spiritual life that all the major world religions teach about how important it is? And – most importantly – how do we do it? How do we grant and seek forgiveness in a genuine way? Come on Sunday as we begin to try to find answers to these important questions.

The world tells us that to be great we must be better than others. We must be stronger, richer, more skilled and so on. If someone is ahead of us we are not, obviously, the best. The Lord redefines greatness. Greatness is not to excel others. Greatness is putting others first. Not only does putting others first make us great; it removes the competition. When we put others first we do not need to feel superior to anyone. We can be content that we have done our part to make the world a better place.

There’s a verse somewhere in the middle of Isaiah that says, ….andquot;you shall be collected, one by one….andquot; Someone recently showed me this verse and pointed out that it has important implications for how we approach our relationships with other people and the Lord.
