A TIME TO FORGIVE
“If we acknowledge our sins, then, since he is trustworthy and just, he will forgive them and purify us from all wrongdoing.” - 1 John 1:9, CJB
Next Monday night marks Rosh Hashanah, the beginning of the New Year. Ten days after that is Yom Kippur. The period between the two is called the “Ten Days of Awe,” As we finish up the “Seven Weeks of Consolation,” reconciling our hearts and minds, we will enter into the time to repent and forgive; a time to resolve conflicts with others. If we’ve hurt or offended anyone over the past year, known or unknown, we go to them and ask forgiveness. We also forgive others who have wronged us. They may not know that they’ve wronged you, and so won’t come to repent, but we forgive them anyway. Through this, we are purified and made new.
So as we’ve made our resolve with our hearts and minds, and with God, let us prepare to resolve ourselves with others. This is how we love our neighbors as ourselves.
Be a Blessing and Be Blessed!
