Ponder:It has been said that we will never look into the eyes of someone God does not love. How will that thought change how you look upon those who have harmed you?
Pray:Heavenly Father, help me find the courage to forgive those who have harmed me, and in charity to pray that they repent. Help me to embrace that you love them, and that all of us who sin are loved and desired for heaven. Amen
