Because the earth is not flawless, God and I together create a space in my heart for the forgiveness of human faults.
Think about the seasons in your life. Everything has a season, a time and a purpose under heaven that God sets in place. Understanding this gives you a sense of stillness when a season comes to an end and you need closure in your life. The season may change and touch any or every area of your life. At first, you will have to adjust to the change. We all do. This is where extending forgiveness to others is paramount to experiencing a smooth transition as seasons change. What areas do you need closure in your life? In what ways has God been merciful to you in your life, and how can you extend this lovingkindness to those who interact with you?
The Principle of Mercy states: "Because the earth is not flawless, God and I together create a space in my heart for the forgiveness of human faults." This includes the faults of others, and even errors you have made.
Who hasn't lived on earth and made mistakes along the way? We are in need of a saviour, and just as Jesus forgives us, so should we forgive others and ourselves. Forgiveness allows true closure to take place. Therefore, whether that season change is by choice, or by an unexpected event, you can choose the path of stillness. May being equipped with this knowledge refresh your soul.
