AND BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER, TENDER-HEARTED,FORGIVING EACH OTHER, JUST AS GOD IN CHRIST ALSO HAS FOGIVEN YOU.  EPHESIANS 4:32

 HOW SHOULD WE RESPOND WHEN ANOTHER FAILS? IF THE PERSON WHO FAILED IS A CHRISTIAN, WE NEED TO AFFIRM GOD'S THRUTH ABOUT HIM OR HER:HE OR SHE IS DEEPLY LOVED, COMPLETELY FORGIVEN, FULLY PLEASING, AND TOTALLY ACCEPTED BY GOD, AND COMPLETE IN CHRIST.   IF THEY ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN ,USE THIS ORIGINAL OPPORTUNITY TO BRING THEM INTO THE ARK OF SAFETY AND ASSURANCE  THAT CHRIST'S BLOOD SHALL WASH THEM WHITER THAN SNOW, .   THIS POSITIVE PERSPECTIVE CAN EVENTUALLY CHANGE OUR CONDEMNING ATTITUDE TO ONE OF LOVE AND DESIRE TO ASSIST ,  AND TO EDIFY THE MASTER......BY BELIEVING IN THESE TRUTHS, WE WILL GRADUALLY BE ABLE TO LOVE THIS PERSON JUST AS GOD LOVES US (1 JOHN 4:11), FORGIVE HIM OR HER JUST AS GOD HAS FORGIVEN US (EPHESIANS 4:32), AND ACCEPT HIM OR HER JUST AS  GOD HAS ABUNDANTLY  ACCEPTED US (ROMANS 15:7). THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT WE WILL BECOME BELLIGERENTLY BLIND TO THE FAULTS OR FAILURES OF OTHERS.  WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEE THEM, BUT OUR RECOGNIZING RESPONSE TO THEM WILL CHANGE CONCISELY AND CONSIDERABLY OVER TIME, FROM CONDEMNATION TO COMPASSION.  AS WE DEPEND LESS ON OTHER PEOPLE FOR OUR SURMOUNTABLE SELF-WORTH, THEIR SINS AND MISTAKES WILL BECOME LESS OF A THREAT TO US, AND WE WILL DESIRE TO HELP AND ASSIST THEM INSTEAD OF BEING CONSTANTLY COMPELLED TO PUNISH THEM..........................................................

WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS?, WHY DO WE BLAME AND  HOLD GRUDGES? WHAT CAUSES ONE TO FEEL THAT THERE IS SO MUCH DIVISION FROM THEIR WRONG COMPARED TO ANOTHER?
