Thanksgiving is Family Time. That doesn't mean to say that everything is always perfect. There are often relationships within families that need to be healed. This can be a time for forgiveness, healing, and restoration. And this is what our God is all about.

Because God is God, He is a God of justice and judgment. We don't receive God's forgiveness until we come to Him in repentance and humility. But when we take the first step of repentance God comes running as He reveals in the story of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32).

Isaiah 55:7 says, "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for HE WILL ABUNDANTLY PARDON." God not only forgives, but ABUNDANTLY forgives and pardons. In the Hebrew it actually means that He will MULTIPLY THE PARDON!

We should have the same spirit. Let's not hold back forgiveness when someone shows even the slightest turning toward us. Let's be like God and ABUNDANTLY forgive. When they take the first step, let's take 99 steps towards them!

There is nothing so beautiful as humility, forgiveness, healing, and restoration. It is the lifestyle of the kingdom of God.
