Neill: self-forgetfulness

Saturday, February 25, 2012
    Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
    —Ephesians 4:32 (NIV)
    Forgiveness can spring only from a self-forgetfulness that is more concerned about another’s well being than about its own, and that longs for the renewal of fellowship even when fellowship has been flouted and destroyed by the willful aggression of another.
    ... Stephen Neill (1900-1984), A Genuinely Human Existence: Towards a Christian Psychology, Garden City, N.Y. : Doubleday, 1959, p. 211 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, restore my relationship with _____ and _____ through forgiveness.
