Making allowances

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you (Colossians 3:13; NIV).

Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you (Matthew 7:1-2).


I often get things wrong,
And have to say I’m sorry,
So I’m always grateful
When people make allowances,
Forgiving me.

Please help me
To make allowances
For others,
And to forgive them, too,
As you forgive us all.
