Love is a Clean Slate

[Love] does not keep a record of wrongs. (I Corinthians 13:5 CSB)

Father, I am so thankful and relieved that ungodly things I did years ago, or even as recent as yesterday, are forgiven – You don’t hold them over my head. They are wiped away and forgotten. This is a concept that’s hard to fully grasp, because I do the opposite – I often keep records of how others have wronged me. Help me to forgive and look forward, not backward. Help me to extend the same grace to others that You extend to me. In the power of Jesus I pray.
