SuperPower Sunday: Forgiveness

Welcome to Superpower Sunday!

This week’s Super-Character skill is Forgiveness:

Healing others by using their offenses as a means of expressing to them Christ’s love.

Character Bookshelf Series, Institute in Basic Youth Conflicts

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

Ephesians 4:32

Please Share! In the comments section below, let us know what you learned and tell your success stories from the last week of practicing flexibility. Also, we’d love to read your ideas of how we might exercise forgiveness between now and next Superpower Sunday!

“Healing others by using their offenses as a means of expressing to them Christ’s love.”
A powerful statement. Much deeper and more intentional. My prayer is that God puts that kind of forgiveness in me because it’s not naturally there.

Indeed! This is one that I hesitate to want to pray for because the opportunities God gives me to practice will involve me taking some extra hits. But then I remember that God wastes nothing and the knocks are likely to chip off crusty edges that need to be removed anyway, so it is ALL in the best interest of my character!

I think forgiveness and flexibility is so vital. It reminds us that we are all human and we all make mistakes and it’s not our job to judge others. Letting go is so hard but it’s better for us and kind of frees us from the burden of carrying that anger and hurt around.
