Day 8 - Forgive it Forward

    01.15.18 | by 40 Day Team

    Warm Up
    Pray: “God, people matter to you so people should matter to me. The relationships in my life are not perfect but I want them to get better. I’ve been hurt by others but I’m sure I’ve hurt others too. Heal my heart so I can bring forgiveness to my relationships. When I forgive others, You promise to forgive me.”

    Round One
    Read:  Ephesians 4:32, Psalm 147:3, Matthew 6: 9-15

    Round Two
    Write down three relationships that need to be healed in your life.

    Round Three
    Move past your hurt and pray for the people on your list. This may feel impossible or unnatural, but do it anyway. Ask God to bless them and help you build a bridge back to them.

    Burnout
    What is the next step to heal the relationships you wrote down? Text each person on the list and suggest a next step. Maybe the next step is to get coffee. Maybe the next step is to apologize in person. Maybe the next step is forgiving that person for something they did. This will be difficult to do but do it anyway.
