Allshorn: forgiveness

Saturday, July 2, 2022
    Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
    —Romans 12:21 (NIV)
    To realize that you are safe and happy standing at God’s side, with His love encompassing you because you are forgiven; too happy to take offense any more; too much in love with life to want to be made miserable with an unforgiving heart, and that now every conflict is a chance to learn more of the exceeding beauty of Love: that is worth living for, and surely worth dying to this misery-making self for. [Continued tomorrow]
    ... Florence Allshorn (1887-1950), The Notebooks of Florence Allshorn, London: SCM Press, 1957, p. 67 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 12:17-21; Gen. 50:20; Matt. 18:21-22; Luke 14:27; Acts 13:37-39; Rom. 6:6-8,11; 2 Cor. 4:10-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, only You can fulfill my heart’s need.
