It is harder to win back the friendship of an offended brother than to capture a fortified city. His anger shuts you out like an iron bar. (The Living Bible)
Remember when you were a child and you had a falling out with your best buddy? It hurt for a while, but it wasn’t long before you were best buds again. Perhaps you’ve discovered that it isn’t like that when an adult upsets a friend. Sometimes it seems almost impossible to make amends and restore a good relationship. It must begin with loving forgiveness.
[Love] keeps no record of wrongs (1 Corinthians 13:6).Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone (Colossians 3:13).
