There is perhaps no greater time in our culture’s history when this command needs to be examined and practiced. “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32 ESV). Forgive one another. There are many teachings telling us the need to forgive which indicates to me that God recognizes that we would struggle with this command.
Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, 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)
