We all have people that have done us wrong. It’s easy to hold on to the hurt, be vindictive, and try to pay people back. But Joel will teach you how one test we all have to pass is not just forgiving people, but being good to those that have not been good to us. This is when you are the smile of God. You can trust God to be your vindicator and fight your battles. God is a God of justice. He sees every wrong, every hurt, and every tear. He has a way to make all of your wrongs right when you trust Him and keep your character pure. When you sow a seeds of kindness and forgiveness, you’re proving to God that He can trust your character. That’s when God will release more favor in your life.
