How wonderful, how beautiful, when brothers and sisters get along! Psalm 133: 1 MSG
Forgiveness is the key to an expansive love. Being forgiven, receiving forgiveness, and extending forgiveness – this way of life breaks down barriers of pride, envy, conceit, and unworthiness.
Forgiveness unlocks the potential to extend grace to others, seeing people in your life as part of an ever-enlarging family.
It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore. (vs 3)
We are meant to be family, gathered from the east and the west, north and south, people streaming in the doors from every corner of the world. Welcoming one another with the sign of peace.
How good and pleasant it is! How wonderful, how beautiful!
