But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:15
Welcome to Heart2Heart devotional. We are on the relationship series on the 10 test of true love or how to know if you what you are in is true love or not. Would you say the love Amnon had for Tamar was true love? Far from it!
Would you also say that the love you have for you her or him is true love? Do not conclude with a yes or a no till we conclude the series on the 10 test of true love. God has a word for you this morning. The next test is……..
THE QUARREL AND FORGIVENESS TEST: Have you had a quarrel with someone and you where able to forgive each other quickly? Where you able to let go quickly or did you boil till the sun went down on your wrath? The bible penned:
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:Neither give place to the devil. Eph 4:26-27
Some peoples anger will never lift no matter how much you plead with them. They let the sun go down on their wrath. Letting the sun go down on your wrath means not being quick to forgive and lay aside the hurt.
A married woman I know had a book of offence where she recorded all her husband’s faults, failures and mistakes. She loves to take her anger to bed, wake up with it and take it to bed several nights before she finally let go.
PEN THIS DOWN:If your anger has lasted more than 24-hrs, you are not only dangerous but know nothing about true love. True love is able to forgive and lay aside the hurt no matter how deep.
True love is not willing to lay aside the hurt; it’s quick to do so. If you do not forgive quickly, you will give room to the devil to torment you. Any love that’s slow to forgive will attract demons in that relationship.
Fake love on the other is slow to forgive and will do so after says of carrying a hurt for days and maybe weeks. The scriptures command us to not only to forgive but be quick to do so. This was why Jesus had to quickly forgive his executors before dying on the cross.
True love will quickly seek to reach an agreement after a quarrel. True love is a quick peace seeker. If your commitment is not strong enough to quickly resolve a quarrel, then you are dangerous to be with and know nothing about true love. True love can and will resolve a conflict quickly, let go quickly and be willing to compromise quickly. God bless you.
