If We Don't Forgive...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

If We Don’t forgive…


If we won’t forgive, how can we be…

The kind of person God wants us to be.


If we’re easily offended by our brother…

How can we fulfill; “love one another?”


Christ commands us to

love everyone the same.

If we can’t, we have ourself to blame.


How many have betrayed

God’s forgiveness…

By hanging on to anger and bitterness?


It’s time to walk in God's love overflowing…

If it’s Christ that we should be showing.


Christ love in us needs to be

what others see!

If we’re to be how Christ

wants us to be!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
