This Christmas

The holidays remind us of how much we love and miss our family. During the years we participate in all types of family drama that leave us bitter and unforgiving. But, life without family dims in comparison to the glitz it has when they decorate our lives with their love. Do you need to forgive someone?

Reconciliation requires humility, a hard pill to swallow for those of us who got an extra dose of pride. The nature of relationships include, by default, disagreements and reconciliation. Let’s face it. Our friends and family will run over us sometimes. They will point out our faults right after we secretly forgive theirs and guess what? We’ll will lick our wounds and get over them. We offend and are offended.

Perhaps within a relationship forgiveness seems unfair. But in the world of relationships, it all works out. Forgiveness transcends a single relationship. The heart set on forgiving refuses to grow bitter.

Christmas is about God’s relentless pursuit of us in spite of our drama. Year after year God desires to reconcile with us though the riff between God and us is our fault. God forgives and reconciles us to Himself through Jesus Christ. He humbly stretches out His hand for us to take though many refuse His love.  Yet He waits…

The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Hope you all had a great holiday season from Virtuous Communications!
