Ephesians 4:32: Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as Christ God forgave you. Talked about showing compassion to those around us and forgiving others even when it may be tough to do.

Led with a thought to keep in mind when dealing with relationship conflict: It is easier to be compassionate when we always assume those we are dealing with are doing the best they can in the current situations in their lives. While this may not always hold true, it teaches us lessons of compassion and forgiveness to stick by it. This doesn’t mean don’t build each other us with constructive criticism or hold each other accountable, instead do it in a loving and wholehearted way. This could invite growth and transformation in all relationships including our relationship with ourselves.

Always remember we don’t forgive people because they deserve it, we forgive them because they need it!

  • This is likely the first time any of us have played roulette and blackjack without losing money
