Colossians 3:13—Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

What does this verse say we are to do?

Bearing with, in the Christian context, means enduring and accepting others as Christ accepts us, especially when they fail to meet our expectations and standards.  Who do you need to bear with today? Ask the Lord to help you.

Forgiveness is so critical. It is not easy, but is so important for our relationships, but also for our own health. It’s also not usually a one-time event. We usually have to forgive numerous times until we are really done with the process.

Look at the end of this verse. How did the Lord forgive you? Think about all He went through for you. How could remembering how much the Lord forgave you, help you in forgiving others?
