Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another just as God has forgiven you in Christ. (Ephesians 4:32)
Compassion is the answer to interpersonal conflict; it fills the gap anger creates, mending the wounds of the brokenhearted. It’s easy to get angry and fight back when we have been wronged, but retaliation often fosters devastating consequences, making matters worse.
Jesus never commanded us to crush our enemies, but to become an expression of His love to them. Do you want to draw people to God? You will not accomplish that by holding a grudge against them, but only by walking in the light as God is in the light. Strive to be as compassionate to others as God has been to you, and you will produce much fruit to His glory.
You didn’t receive the gospel only to be forgiven, but to show others what forgiveness looks like.
