Support for Relationships

 

‘Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us’
Matthew 6:12

Some of the most painful fractures of relationships occur in family life.
I have known families in which siblings have not spoken to each other for decades,
and the hate is still as sharp as it was so long ago. It is no accident that as soon as sin enters the world,
we have the epic story of murder within a family. But however terrible the sin is,
we are called to forgive the other person as we ourselves have been forgiven.
This does not necessarily imply that we take the person back to the place they once occupied,
but we will not take revenge and we will seek their good. When there is repentance there can also be reconciliation and peace.
This is what God has done for us, and we should be led by him.

Question for thought: If I have offended, am I willing to humbly seek forgiveness and reconciliation?

Our Father in heaven we pray for the Diocese of Gitega in Burundi as they put peace
and reconciliation at the heart of their work. Please answer their prayers to know the best way
of addressing domestic violence and other family issues.
May the Literacy Program continue to help people as they seek employment
and education but especially to know you through your word.  Amen
