Moving Godwards

Ephesians 4:31-32
Put away from you all bitterness and wrath and anger and wrangling and slander, together with all malice, and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.

Giving others the benefit of the doubt
Using slights or false accusations
or mischief making
as opportunities 
to choose the better path.
Refusing to repay evil with evil
Choosing, instead
the path that leads us
closer to God
Forgiving because we know forgiveness
Moving on
Not without hurt
or scars
but in the knowledge
that God binds our wounds
and hugs into us
kindness
tender heartedness
and forgiveness.
Seeing the malice of others
as an opportunity by which
God allows growth.
Putting away those things
that take us far
from God.
