Day Twenty One: #lighttheworld

Today marks day twenty one of #lighttheworld. Can you believe it, today has reached three weeks ago since I started doing day/evening by day/evening of #lighttheworld. My goodness, time flies too quickly while I am working and sleeping in on most days. Less than five days left of doing #lighttheworld.

"Jesus Forgave Others and So Can You"

Jesus Christ showed compassion for those who loved Him and even for those who didn’t. On the cross, Jesus asked His Father to forgive those who crucified Him. We, too, can bring light into the world as we follow His example of forgiving others.

Today's scripture is found in Matthew 18:21-22 and it reads the following;

“21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.”

I encourage you to think about the following questions;
"When was the last time that you have forgiven someone?" "Was it last night?" "Was it this morning?"
"Was it a few days ago?" "Was it a few months ago?" "Was it a few years ago?" "Was it ages ago?"

"How did you feel after forgiving someone?" "Does it make you feel good inside?"
"Does it make you happy and look forward to move forward?"

I know it is hard to forgive people at times, but we need to forgive each day and each night because it is the right thing to do. I would like to encourage you to forgive others often through your daily prayers and nightly prayers.

I would like you to read the talk or watch the talk that is about a powerful story on forgiveness in your own time. I love the subheading and the subheading says "If we can find forgiveness in our hearts for those who have caused us hurt and injury, we will rise to a higher level of self-esteem and well-being."

I love the Image above, and if you can not see the Image above, it says "Heaven is filled with those who have this in common: They are forgiven, and they forgive. - Dieter F. Uchtdorf."

Stay Tuned until next time.
