Forgiveness

Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the LORD, that he may come and shower righteousness upon you. – Hosea 10:12 NLT
 
O God, forgive me for using the sharpness of my tongue to hurt my friend. It’s too late to undo the consequences. I cannot retract my words; they’ve done their damage. But now I have a choice to humble myself and ask my friend for forgiveness. Lord, I pray that you will redeem my foolishness and bring something positive from this situation. Amen.
