Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
I know I’m not alone when I say I’ve been forgiven by God for SO many things that I have no right to withhold forgiveness from anyone who wrongs me.
Pride causes us to hold a grudge, but God calls us to be humble.
Pride demands an apology.
It takes humility to forgive an offense.
Pride refuses to admit our own wrongdoing.
Humility enables us to sincerely apologize and seek reconciliation.
If you want to demonstrate true, godly love to your kids, apologize to them when necessary. It shows them that you value them more than your ego. If you truly want to repair a relationship that’s gone wrong, show some humility.
If you want your relationships to thrive, resist pride.
Real love is powerful because it is selfless. The world’s love lacks any power because it’s all self-centered. When we put others before ourselves, we love like God loves us and it’s a game changer. Showing humility to others values them, just as God’s love for us gives us value.
