If you are like me there has been a time in your life where you have had your hand in the proverbial cookie jar. In my case I had it in there literally and proverbially. This adage normally refers to someone who is caught doing something they are not supposed to be doing. Funny how often we seem to find ourselves in these situations. Here is what interesting about that when we are the ones who are caught with our hands in the proverbial cookie jar we expect forgiveness. However, when we catch someone else with their hands in the proverbial cookie jar we seek in our mind what we consider justice. God says the same mercy you would like extended unto you is the same mercy you are to extend to others.
So today who do you need to forgive? Remember If you don't forgive your brothers and sisters of their trespasses neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive of your trespasses.
