Sunday Devotional: Ephesians 4:31-32

“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.  Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”

As we enter this Christmas season, let us have caring and forgiving hearts towards one another.  Let us love one another and let that be what defines us.  We may not have been so kind or caring or forgiving as we should’ve been earlier in the year, but we have a great opportunity to do that now.

It may seem tough at times to forgive but remember that God has forgiven us through the work of Jesus on the cross.  We are able to have a renewed and restored relationship with God because of that.  Along with that, He has given us a new heart.  A heart that is better able to be kind, to be tenderhearted, to be able to forgive.

This week and in this Christmas season, let us forgive and let us show kindness to one another.
