Herbert: the bridge of forgiveness

Thursday, June 10, 2021
    [Jesus:] “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your sins.”
    —Mark 11:25-26 (NIV)
    He who cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass.
    ... Edward Herbert of Cherbury (1583-1648), The Autobiography of Edward, Lord Herbert of Cherbury, London: Walter Scott, 1888, p. 40 (see the book)
    See also Mark 11:25-26; Matt. 6:12,14-15; Luke 11:4; Eph. 4:32; Col. 3:13; 1 Pet. 3:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, implant in me a heart that desires to forgive.
