Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection    


Sometimes you hear someone say, “I’ll forgive, but I won’t forget.” The implication is that they will always be ready to bring it up if you do anything like this again. But this is not the way God forgives. Jeremiah says God “will forgive their evildoing and remember their sin no more” (Jeremiah 31:34). Indeed, this is the way the Lord has operated throughout scripture, and this is the way God continues to forgive. This is the way we are called to forgive each other.

A veces hemos escuchado a algunos decir: “Yo perdono, pero no olvido”. Lo que eso implica es que siempre estarán dispuestos a traer la ofensa a colación si se da la oportunidad. Pero así no es como Dios perdona. Jeremías dice que Dios “les perdón(a) sus culpas y olvid(a) para siempre sus pecados” (Jeremías 31, 34). Verdaderamente, ésa es la manera en que el Señor ha obrado a través de todas las Escrituras y es la manera en que sigue perdonando. De esa misma manera estamos nosotros llamados a perdonarnos los unos a los otros. 


Quote for the Week... 

“When we encounter others, do we bring them the warmth of charity or do we stay closed up and warm only ourselves before our fireplace?”
