April 2nd is Reconciliation Today

text size A A A

Do you have a fractured relationship with someone that needs to be mended?

Jesus taught his disciples to reconcile:

"So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift." - Matthew 5:23-24 ESV

Paul the Apostle taught Christians to engage in a "ministry of reconciliation."

"All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation." - 2 Corinthians 5:18-19 ESV

April 2nd is Reconciliation Day.

According to Holiday Insights, "Reconciliation Day is a special day to patch relationships and to make amends. It's intention is to re-establish relationships between family, friends and couples. Life is too short to hold a grudge between those we love."
