About Today Readings

Daniel 3:25, 34-43. Remember your mercies, O Lord – Psalm 24(25):4-9. Matthew 18:21-35.

How often should I forgive my brother?
Lord, many people can I forgive,
but never someone who abused
the trust I placed in them, betrayed
and dumped me and, without a word,
just walked away insultingly:
must I forgive someone like that?

Well, I do know what that is like:
my dear friend Judas sold me out
and Peter lied and ran away.
but he was weak as we all are weak –
I looked him in the face with love.
Forgiveness is a gift, takes time,
so pray, and wait till it is given.
