Mercy triumphs over judgment! (James 2:13). Lord, I want to enjoy the freedom of forgiving others.
When has someone offering you their forgiveness made a difference in your life later on?

Anger in itself is not necessarily wrong. But impatient anger can be destructive.
If we wait until the people around us rise to a higher standard before we speak words of kindness, we may never speak.
When has God's kindness motivated you to be kind to someone else?
