Let me forget my brother’s past today.
This is the thought that leads the way to You, and brings me to my goal. I cannot come to You without my brother. And to know my Source, I first must recognise what You created one with me. My brother’s in the hand that leads me on the way to You. His sins are in the past along with mine, and I am saved because the past is gone. Let me not cherish it within my hart, or I will lose the way to walk to You. My brother is my saviour. Let me not attack the saviour you have given me. But let me honour him who bears Your Name, and so remember that it is my own.
Forgive me, then, today. And you will know you have forgiven me if you behold your brother in the light of holiness. He cannot be less holy than can I, and you cannot be holier than he.
I could have done with an extra day to recuperate from Saturday night’s lack of sleep, but no- it was straight into doing viewings and dealing with admin things. I did, however, treat myself to a celebratory Sauvignon Blanc.
With regard to the lesson – it was a timely reminder that a person I cannot see eye-to-eye with at the moment, is my saviour, because he’s showing me the way to forgiveness. I have to confess it was much easier to forgive once the wine had kicked in.
