Being forgiven when I do not deserve it is stressful

Forgiven  |  November 30

If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;
For so you will heap coals of fire on his head, and the LORD will reward you.

Proverbs 25:21-22


Father, we know it is Your will that we take care of Your children, whether they are being obedient or not. When we have an opportunity and they have a need, it was an appointment made by You. You have taught us to love our neighbors as ourselves. You have said elsewhere, “They will know us by our love”.

Your word teaches that when we help someone who does not deserve it, by their own judgment, it presents a very perplexing problem for that person. We have responded in love and they were expecting rejection. It is truly better to give than to receive. In Jesus’ Holy name, we pray, amen.
