I know my blog is about my pondering, but I ask my readers this time, to ponder…
Something to ponder when you feel overwhelmed by what is taking place in this world. When you hear words like “I will never forgive __________” , or this or that is unforgivable, or we should round them all up, kick them out and kill them. Ponder also when we say these things ourselves and think about how many others live this way, unable to forgive for anything. Ponder how some souls in your own life, who you love dearly, refuse to forgive you and how it makes you feel.
Now, look at our Lord on the cross, and remember His words:
“Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.”
How can we expect or demand peace, in such an unforgiving world?
By forgiving and keeping our focus on what is above.
