FORGIVENESS IN THE HOUSEHOLD. I worked with Colossians 3:13 today -- "Forgive as the Lord forgave you." Here are four pithy assertions regarding forgiveness:

1. Forgiveness is an imperative for authentic Christian life and witness.

2. Forgiveness in the household is necessary because we are selfish, error-prone, and often presumptuous.

3. Forgiveness is possible because God is gracious.

4. Forgiveness is both a daily choice and a distinctly heavenly grace.
