Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge

18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.  Leviticus 19:18

We are called to be a people of forgiveness when we walk with Jesus Christ.  It is only by the grace and mercy of God that we have been forgiven.  How can we be forgiven by the Lord and not be willing to forgive those who have wronged us in some way.  Jesus never did anything to deserve the punishment that was placed upon Him, but He choose the cross because of His love for us.  We are called to love one another and Jesus said that we would be known by His love.  Let us do all things in love and be willing to forgive those who have trespassed against us.  We live in a broken world filled with broken people.  Let us focus our eyes and hearts upon Jesus Christ and seek first His kingdom and His righteousness.
