MacDonald: forgiveness

Wednesday, November 8, 2023
    Feast of Saints & Martyrs of England
    [Jesus’ example prayer:] “Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”
    —Matthew 6:12 (NIV)
    He who forgives not is not forgiven, and the prayer of the Pharisee is as the weary beating of the surf of hell, while the cry of a soul out of its fire sets the heart-strings of love trembling.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), Sir Gibbie, v. I [1879], Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1880, p. 60 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 6:12,14-15; 18:21-35; Mark 11:25; Luke 11:4; 18:10-14; Eph. 4:32; Col. 3:13; Jas. 2:12-13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I may learn truly to forgive.
