Forgive your family like God has forgiven you.
Read Ephesians 4:29 - 32
29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Questions for Thought
1.) Is there a family member that you need to forgive? Pray for them and the conflict that lead to the need for forgiveness.
2.) As we have been saying, none of us are perfect. Thank about how you handled the conflict or what may have lead to it. Is there a role you played in it that you need to acknowledge?
3.) Forgiveness is often a process, so after you have thought and prayed for them and the conflict, tell God that you want to forgive them.
4.) How can you have a conversation with that person to heal and restore the relationship?
Forgiveness is hard, but not forgiving is even harder; leading to strained relationships and stopping us from being able to heal.
