Luke 7: 36-50
Love of God and forgiveness of sins are deeply connected. Forgiveness elicits love and love wins forgiveness. Whether we need to be forgiven or are challenged to forgive another, the Lord is present when charity abides. Without charity, God is absent and forgiveness false.
Lord Jesus, I seek to be forgiven and ask to be inspired by your love. In charity alone am I able to offer forgiveness to those who have harmed me.
