How To Have Good Relationships

Sounds difficult, doesn’t it?  But it is really very simple, if we are just willing to do it.  Here’s the five steps:

  1. Make a list of everyone who has hurt you. 
  2. Forgive everyone on the list.
  3. Make a list of everyone whom you may have hurt.
  4. Go and sincerely ask for forgiveness from each person.
  5. Take responsibility for your life. 

That’s it.  See? Simple.  What?  You expected a long-drawn-out explanation?  The Word of God is very clear.  Matthew 6:15 states: 

But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

I have a friend who says he loves the Lord, yet he refuses to say the words: “I’m sorry”.  Mostly because he does not accept responsibility for his life.  This really concerns me.  Please, don’t be like my friend.  Saying ”I’m sorry” is one of the most freeing things you can do for yourself.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come,
your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.  Amen
