NIV Daily Devotional;

Restore Your Relationships (Matthew 5:23–24)

Forgiveness from God coupled with responsibility toward the other person are key to restoring relationships. In Jesus’ eyes, broken relationships are always our responsibility. If someone has something against us, he calls us to go and make it right (see Matthew 5:23–24). If we have something against another, we’re responsible to take the initiative to settle our differences (see Matthew 18:15). It’s not always comfortable, but it is always the right thing to do. Do whatever it takes to restore the relationship. Do it because it pleases God and because your relationships will be richer for it.

Reflect & Pray:

  • What are ways you might need to reconcile your relationship with God?
  • What relationship did you once enjoy that has since unraveled?
  • What are steps you could take to restore that relationship?
