Forgiveness for the little things is really hard for me sometimes. I’ve realized this about myself recently and it’s something I’m working on. Being a loving person to my friends and family is easy, well— not EASY but you know what I mean, it’s a lot easier to be understanding towards people I know love me.
It’s easier when I already know someone has good intentions and whatever they’ve done that hurt me was accidental. But it’s the little things that can make me rage sometimes. The car that cuts me off or almost hits me, rudeness, being met with an angry glare when I’m greeting a stranger with a smile— these little slights seem to linger and fester sometimes…
I want to treat people with a more forgiving heart but some ‘trespasses’ are easier to let go of than others, it’s still a work in progress and I’m reminded today that I’m thankful the Father is more forgiving than I’ll probably ever be.
