Forgiveness – A Gift I Give to Myself

Passage: Matthew 6: 14-15, Luke 15: 1-2, 11-32
Service Type:

Forgiveness. A gift from God to humanity. A gift from us to all others. A gift we need to give to ourselves? ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ is considered as the royal law in the New Testament. In that one little statement is the expectation that of course I would love myself since I’m created in God’s image. But for some, when it comes to forgiveness, the thought of forgiving oneself seems somehow, not right. That we are not worthy of forgiveness. Not worthy of love. But God says… “You are my son, my daughter…heart of my heart. I could never stop loving you!”
