DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
A couple which will enjoy bliss in their home will learn to forgive each other. It is certain that offending each other is inevitable. Some people have the knack to keep account of offenses against them; they keep permanent records of what their spouses have done to offend them. Ironically same people readily overlook same actions if done by spouses of their friends, but they are unwilling to overlook when the actions are done by their own spouses. Keeping record of wrongs throws sand in the gears that keep the family running. Unforgiving spirit disqualifies the person from obtaining forgiveness from God. Couples should learn to forgive each other freely. The offending party should not take the spouse for granted either. It is unlikely that a genuinely born-again spouse will intentionally keep doing what is wrong against his spouse.
Point of Emphasis: For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
Prayer Point: Father, give us the spirit which readily forgives those who offend us.
