Thinking about these two contrasting ideas today.
God’s forgiveness is conditional. We are only forgiven in as much as we forgive.
God’s love is unconditional. We are loved no matter what. This we take for granted. We shrug off God’s love as if it’s something of a right.
But think about forgiveness – unless we can turn to our friends, family and acquaintances and forgive them – God will not forgive us.
Could it be that love is something we all need, no matter what. But forgiveness is something that can only be experienced as we learn to forgive?
Something to think about.
