Pull in the Anchor
 by Charles R. Swindoll

Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.—Matthew 6:12
 Have you done someone wrong?

 Have you been offensive?

 Have your actions caused hurt?

 To do nothing is not only in direct disobedience to Jesus’ teaching, it also complicates your life. It adds heavier mental weights than you are capable of carrying.

 It is like dropping an anchor and then cranking up your boat’s engine and putting it in gear. The anchor keeps catching and snagging on the bottom, making for a terribly uncomfortable ride across the water.

 How simple the solution! Just pull in the anchor. . . .

 Let me give you a simple tip: We cannot be right with God until we are right with others.

    People have such a problem with saying “I’m sorry, please forgive me” and I was no different. I used to be so hard headed; always thinking I was in the right. I learned that is not really that important to be right; and much more important to have a “right-standing” with someone. Forgiveness and having a “right-standing” with someone is so important to God that it says in the bible: If you have a gift for the lord and remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift in front of the altar and go be reconciled with your brother. Real kinship with one another starts with accountability, humbleness and a right heart. Great post Katia! We can all learn from this.
