Wednesday, February 6

Do not let the sun set while you are still angry.—Eph. 4:26.

 

When a fellow believer or a family member says or does something that hurts us deeply, we may be devastated. Suppose we cannot simply forget the incident. Will we allow resentment to fester for years? Or will we follow the Bible’s wise advice to settle matters quickly? The longer we put off dealing with the situation, the harder it will be for us to make peace with our brother. What positive steps can you take to make peace? First, approach Jehovah in earnest prayer. Ask him to help you to have an upbuilding conversation with your brother. Remember, he is one of Jehovah’s friends. (Ps. 25:14) Jehovah treats his friends with kindness, and he expects no less from us. (Prov. 15:23; Matt. 7:12; Col. 4:6) Next, review in your mind what you are going to say. Do not assume that your brother set out deliberately to hurt you. And be open to the possibility that in some way you may have contributed to the rift. w18.01 10 ¶15-16

I love this Scripture and I really love the way the JW Broadcast song

highlights its message:

Quote

Forgive One Another

JW Broadcast - October 2016

 

Yes, you had the best of intentions.

Kindnesses too numerous to mention.

But thoughtless words just cut me to the heart.

Then, as a tear appears, I see.

Things aren’t what they seem to be.

 

Before the sun slips from the sky,

Let’s be sure we both see eye to eye.

We’ll forget the things we said,

And, please, let’s forgive.

Sisters today, sisters we’ll stay.

 

Getting along is not always easy.

Angry words can bring you down, believe me.

Then you find a reason to forgive,

And now you realize it’s true.

Letting go’s the thing to do.

 

Before the sun slips from the sky,

Let’s be sure we both see eye to eye.

We’ll forget the things we said,

And, please, let’s forgive.

Brothers today, brothers we’ll stay.

 

Not one thing said or done can break us up.

Love’s a bond of unity.

Cancel the debt; forgive and forget.

That’s the way true friendship should be

 

Before the sun slips from the sky,

Let’s be sure we both see eye to eye.

We’ll forget the things we said,

And, please, let’s forgive.

Here in our hearts, that’s where it starts.

 

Bonded in love, forgiving one another.
