Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“…I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ, lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices” (2 Cor 2:10-11). Forgiveness should be a part of our daily Christian diet: a part of our routine that never gets skipped. When we fail to forgive another person, we give Satan a foothold to take advantage of us. We think that if we cling to resentment and refuse to forgive, we’ll hurt the other person; but by harboring unforgiveness, we’re really only hurting ourselves. Do not be ignorant of Satan’s devices. Forgive freely and often! God has forgiven us; it only follows that we should forgive others.

Prayer:

Father, help me to forgive! I refuse to participate in the enemy’s plans to sow bitterness into my life. I’m going to forgive everyone I can in Jesus’ name!!
