Aliyah led us through devotion on the word “forgiveness” from our 30 Character Qualities. She spoke to us about why we forgive (Matthew 6:14, Ephesians 4:32). She talked to us about conditions of forgiveness like repentance (see Luke 17:3-4). She gave us examples of forgiveness like Jesus in Luke 23:34 and Stephen in Acts 7:60. She also shared some interesting things like Romans 12:20, “If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him something to drink. For in doing so you will be heaping fiery coals on his head” (HCSB). She noted that this was interesting because it revealed a different purpose then the other examples in that the purpose of forgiveness was to bring our enemy to repentance through kindness. She also talked about some questions she had in regard to First John 1:9 and Deuteronomy 31:6. This was a Scripture packed devotion. Thank you, Aliyah. You have given us some deep thoughts to think about.
