To ascertain the wisdom of forgiveness.

LORD, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive him? As many as seven times? Matthew 18:21b

Ezekiel 12:1-12, Psalm 78 & Matthew 18:21–19:1

Peter loved to ask Jesus questions. I for one would have been asking one question after another too of our LORD. We all have questions in our minds we’d like to ask God. I’d love to hear what some of you think about what you’d ask God yourself. The ever so prominent question of, “Why are we here?” comes to mind as Jesus reminds us today to forgive over and over and over again. “I (Jesus) say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.” I know, it’s not easy but it’s God Divine Plan for humanity to live in harmony not frustration.

I believe in my heart this is where prayer comes into play in our lives for I feel pretty certain that none of us can say, “Nobody has ever wronged me so I don’t have to forgive anyone for anything.” People do things to make other people mad. Maybe some don’t mean to but a lot of times man steps on the toes of others on purpose looking to create adversity. Turning the other cheek is the hardest thing to do but God instills in all mankind the need to forgive allowing our hearts to experience true love from God’s Will of Truth.

Last night we embraced hundreds of people who helped us forgive our own faults of control most of us feel in our hearts when it comes to our children. We want to protect them and we feel helpless sometimes when we can’t. “What did I do to deserve this” is a question of forgiveness we fail to recognize we should be answering in prayer if anything happens to our children for God does not instill hate, accidents, injury or even death. God instills faith, hope/charity and love allowing us to learn from the results of “Free Will” mankind inflicts on others.

From our “Free Will” to “God’s Will” of learning, labor and love allows us to ascertain the wisdom of forgiveness instilling in our hearts the need for God’s Truth. Results of others negligence will seem unfair but God will allow you to grow in these moments of despair if only we’d forgive each and every time the inflictions of life come upon you. To forgive is to be forgiven in a life where wrongs will happen. It’s how we forgive, focus and ferment our lives in God’s Truth will we experience the composure to live in peace of God’s Forgiveness. Amen.

So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to forgive as to be forgiven. We pray for the healing of Matthew, Kathy’s little girl, Joe Tomlinson, Teri Gutierrez, Norma, and Barbara Burris. We accept Your Divine Will in all things. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Rejoice and have peace in Christ Jesus!

 

Seven Times Seven brings peace in Heaven- Matthew 18:21–19:1

 

The LORD was asked why

We forgive and not cry

When a brother does deny

The Truth of one’s eye

 

Should we let go seven times?

Peter asked with a smile

Jesus said 77 times we must forgive

So God’s love will never be denied

 

Eternity requires true peace

Seven Times Seven to cease

Goodwill to forever increase

Brings peace in Heaven to the least

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
