Turn Off the Scoreboard
[ Ephesians 4:25 - 4:32 ] - hymn254 
Forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. - Ephesians 4:32
At his son’s wedding reception, my friend Bob offered advice and encouragement to the newlyweds. In his speech he told of a football coach in a nearby town who, when his team lost a game, kept the losing score on the scoreboard all week to remind the team of their failure. While that may be a good football strategy, Bob wisely advised, it’s a terrible strategy in marriage. When your spouse upsets you or fails you in some way, don’t keep drawing attention to the failure. Turn off the scoreboard.

What great advice! Scripture is full of commands for us to love each other and overlook faults. We are reminded that love “keeps no record of wrongs”(1 Cor.13:5) and that we should be ready to forgive one another “just as in Christ God forgave you”(Eph.4:32).

I am deeply grateful that God turns off the scoreboard when I fail. He doesn’t simply forgive when we repent; He removes our sin as far as the east is from the west(Ps.103:12). With God, forgiveness means that our sin is out of sight and out of mind. May He give us grace to extend forgiveness to those around us. - Joe Stowell
Lord, thank You for not holding my sins against me and for granting me a second chance. Help me today to forgive others just as You have so freely forgiven me.
Forgiveas God forgives you—don’t keep score.

Ephesians 4:25-32

[25] Therefore, putting away lying, "Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor," for we are members of one another.
[26] "Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your wrath,
[27] nor give place to the devil.
[28] Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need.
[29] Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.
[30] And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
[31] Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.
[32] And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.
