Counting Forgiveness? Family Reflection Video

Counting Forgiveness? Family Reflection Video

Strengthening family unity  |  Healing the family

Forgiveness is not easy for us, but it is possible.

There are hundreds of questions we could ask regarding forgiveness. How many times have we been forgiven? How often have you forgiven that one person? Do you invite others to forgive someone else?

These questions lead us to think on what forgiveness means for us and for God. When we follow God’s ways, we will become forgiving, for He is ever compassionate. Sharing this with friends strengthens relationships and brings family members back together. How can you bring forgiveness to those in your life?

Lord we pray for the strength in our hearts to forgive, to be forgiven, and to foster this act of love in others.
