Key to Freedom

Luke 17:4
If someone wrongs you seven times in one day and returns to you seven times saying, ‘I am sorry,’ you should forgive him.”

Forgiveness is one of the main keys to begin entering the Kingdom of God. It happens now. When we forgive…we not only free the person who wronged us…but we free ourselves as well. As followers of Jesus…we are also called to work to correct any social injustice being done…while maintaining a forgiving heart. This takes a transformed mind and way of thinking. This can happen through following Jesus and His example…cultivating a contemplative prayer practice…plus plenty of grace.
