I am very blessed that I have the time to get deeper into my faith. I consider it a gift to be able to do so. Even with my deeper faith, I am still reeling over the terrible shooting in Charleston South Carolina. As our pastor said in church this morning, “This was pure evil. However, evil will NOT win.” He then went on to read the very moving statements by the families of the shooting victims. They were all about forgiveness. Wow, what a powerful lesson. I don’t think I could be that forgiving is some animal shot down my loved ones. I could pray for them, but I’m not so sure about forgiveness.

In times of trouble like this, I turn to God. When I read my Bible this morning, this is the phrase that stood out for me:

In Matthew 6:14 Jesus shows us what forgiveness really is: “For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”

What about you?
