Long-term memory loss

[Love]  is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. I Cor. 13:5b

Often when someone irritates us any old memories we might have of that person’s past offenses seem to surface so that we can justify prolonged and escalated irritation with that person. Our default setting seems to be to hold grudges and carry around our old wounds and past conflicts. One aspect of the transforming power of Jesus’ reconciling love is that we can learn to toss the wrongs that others commit against us, wrongs we have already forgiven, into His sea of forgetfulness.

Lord, thank you for erasing the record of my wrongs, I need to borrow Your eraser.
