"Then Jesus said:

planted in his garden.
It grew and became a large shrub and
the birds of the air nested in its branches.'"

"We, for our part, love
because he first loved us.
If anyone says,
'My love is fixed on God,'

he is a liar.
One who has no love for the brother he has seen
cannot love the God he has not seen.
The commandment we have from him is this:
whoever loves God must also love his brother."
1 John 4:19-21

Forgive, forgive, forgive.
Ask the Lord to help you forgive
anyone that has hurt you.
