Be Quick To Resolve Offenses and To Seek Forgiveness

Man-Woman-Fight.jpgThe Bible is a practical book, teaching us not just who God is but how He wants us to live.  Within the pages of Scripture we see both principle and example of many different life choices.  The one I want to focus on today is the idea that we are not to let things go on long when there is an issue with other people.

In Ephesians 4:26 we read:

Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,

This is a very wise principle, for over time things tend to harden in our minds and the more time passes the harder it is to restore what once was there.  Indeed, while sometimes time will heal some old wounds, it won’t do it until forgiveness and repair have been had– and sometimes what happens is that time has healed the wound, but the relationship has already been destroyed and is now beyond repair.

A Wise Heart Will Seek God

Which WayIn order to know how to evade his plight, David looked at it the plight in two different ways– as a person and as a prince. As a person, David clung to the fact that God was merciful, compassionate and just. His unchanging nature condemned David when he was in sin, but was also something that David could cling to when David was in trouble. David knew that if he put his faith in the Lord, if He trusted in God alone, God would have to get the glory and God would take care of him.
