Miracle of Forgiveness
Last week an incredible miracle took place in the comfort of our own home. Our son came home from playing at our good friends house. He seemed different than usual. Not his crazy happy self. I noticed right away but didn't say anything because he proceeded to tell me of what happened. I am not going to go into detail for the protection of our friends but just know that he little friends' older brother who is 10 taught them something he had learned through a series of different events. Anyway, I called the mother, feeling like a school girl that was tattling. I expressed my concern for her son. My son would be alright and I knew that, I was just worried about her son and just about her being aware of it. She called me at 7 in the morning the next morning. She asked if, before school, she could bring her son over and apologize. Of course we said yes.
Here is where the miracle took place. The sweet, cute little boy started crying which made all of us cry and apologized the sweetest short and simple apology I have ever heard. He promised to not do it again. I felt God's love for that boy. God made me and everyone in that room know of His love for this little boy. I had an indescribable love for this little boy. Everyone in this room felt the miracle of forgiveness happen right before our eyes. We knew this child had been forgiven. We knew God loved him. We loved him. We all forgave him instantly without effort.
Our Savior Jesus Christ died for us so we can be forgiven. We need to forgive everyone and even forgive them multiple times. It is truly a miracle that we can be forgiven of our faults when we repent. It is a miracle that Jesus has taught us to forgive others so we can all feel the joyous feeling we felt and the love we felt for anyone who has done anything to hurt you. Just think what this world would be like if we could all forgive everyone and love everyone like our Father in Heaven and Jesus do.
Lets all work on forgiving someone we haven't in the past forgiven. Lets all work on looking at people through God's eyes and loving them like He does.
