We spend a lot of time getting ready every day. We get ready for the day by eating breakfast and brushing our teeth (hopefully!). We get ready for the sports we compete in by practicing before a game. We get ready for our future by working hard in school or saving money from our job.
What’s so great about this verse is that it reminds us we serve a God who is always ready! He is ready to forgive because forgiveness is in His DNA. It’s who He is and how He loves us.
The next time we need to forgive, we can turn to the God who is always ready. We can ask Him to make us ready to forgive those who have wronged or hurt us. To make us more like Him in this way.
