CQOD: 06/25/06 -- John Chrysostom: the fruits of forgiveness

Christian Quotation of the Day

June 25, 2006
    Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
    -- Colossians 3:12-13 (ESV)

    Let us pardon those who have wronged us. For that which others scarcely accomplish—I mean the blotting out of their own sins by means of fasting and lamentations, and prayers, and sackcloth and ashes—this it is possible for us easily to effect without sackcloth and ashes and fasting, if only we blot out anger from our heart, and with sincerity forgive those who have wronged us.
    ... St. John Chrysostom (345?-407)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help me to forgive the wrongs done to me, for the sake of Your sacrifice for me.
