Focus: The Measure of a Strong Man

It takes a strong man to forgive the wrong doings of men, apologize his wrong doings to men, be at peace with all men and humble himself to do God's will at all times!!!
Scriptural Reference
"Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. (Roman 12:17-18 )
One of the most difficult thing to do as a man is to forgive those who offended you and to acknowledge your shortcomings before men by taking a bold step to apologize in a bid to ensure peace. It is the will of God for us to be strong in this aspect irrespective of the offense of people towards us and how humiliating it seems to be when acknowledging your weakness and offence before men.

It is an outright sign of weakness under God if you still find it difficult to forgive those who sinned against you and to acknowledge your sins before men and God. Jesus said: people of this world subscribe to "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth" But for us He commanded us not to resist an evil person and that whoever slaps us on your right cheek, we should turn the other to him also (Matt.5:38-39).

We resemble Him when we give people another opportunity to offend us the more even as we forgive them again and again in the manner we sin against God and receive forgiveness again and again. The devil will be finding every means to discredit your faith in God by reacting like a baby. Be strong in the Lord; be an advocate of peace with people.
Question For Meditation:
+ Is there an offense to forgive? Is there an apology to seek? How tolerant are you with people? Are you humble?

Prayer Point:
Lord! I receive the grace to resemble you in my attributes in Jesus name. Amen!!!

Main Emphasis:
It is a sign of weakness for a man to find it difficult to forgive men their sin and acknowledge his shortcomings before men and God!!!

Have a Wonderful Thursday!!!
