I forgive, and I am free.

Every now and then, we all fall short of our highest and best selves. When I become aware of this in myself or in another, I hear the voice of Jesus say, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.

" From the Christ Presence in me, I look beyond my own behavior or that of my brother or sister, and I pray. I pray that I may accept the peace of forgiveness.

I know that mistakes are due to failure to accept God's gifts of wisdom and understanding. In this awareness, I forgive.

I take responsibility for what I have done, and I do what I can to make it right. Most important, I accept the power of redeeming love.

In forgiving myself and others, I am free. The indwelling Christ has awakened in me.

First be reconciled to your brother or sister, and then come and offer your gift.--Matthew 5:24
