Day 12: Give way

My great great aunt told me that marriages need two bears in them: bear and forebear. To forebear, to give someone else priority, to hold back can be a virtue that make life less competitive and more harmonious, less judgemental and more inclusive. And this sign is perhaps particularly encouraging by inviting us to ‘give way more’!

So then, let us stop judging one another. Instead, you should decide never to do anything that would make others stumble or fall into sin. Romans 14:13

“… yet not my will, but yours be done.” Luke 22: 42b

Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6: 10
