The Bible tells us that God's kindness, forbearance and patience towards us for our misdeeds is only to lead us to repentance – He is the God of the second chance. What about us in our dealings with others – are we willing to give them a second chance when they do something wrong or their performance falls short of expected standards?
"But the fruit of the Spirit is kindness" – Galatians 5:22 (New International Version)
"Lord, let us be willing to show kindness and give others a second chance when they do things that disappoint us or even hurt us. Let us also be kind to the needy and the downtrodden. Let us also be quick to forgive those who offend us. Let us walk in the Spirit and draw strength from you to show genuine kindness to others. In Jesus' name, Amen."
