And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.
As the first product that we apply in our face is cleaner, our soul needs, above all, be cleaned. The soul’s cleaner is forgiveness and we should use it all the time, applying it every time we see an impurity caused by an offense received. When Jesus taught his disciples to pray, he warned as says Mark 11:25. Never get to bed without having apologized to those offended and without having forgiven those who offended you. If thou doest well, the result is a pleasant and peaceful sleep without nightmares or insomnia.
Facial skin is the one most exposed to dust and environmental pollutants, the fill factors of impurities, irritating and make it susceptible to premature aging if you do not have proper sanitation. Therefore, facial cleansing should be essential to your beauty routine. For successful facial cleansing just moisten your face with lukewarm water, then apply a suitable cosmetic product for your skin type and rinse.
Why need to clean the skin? First it is important to remove secretions from sweat and sebum produced by the body throughout the day, as well as dirt from outside and, in the case of women, the remains of cosmetics that have been used during the day. Cosmetic cleaning preparations we use must respect the pH of the skin and not be irritating or cause allergic reactions.
Just like facial skin, the human soul is exposed to dust of offenses and pollution of gossip. So our soul is filled with impurities that irritate us and make us susceptible to prematurely become grumpy old men. Cleaning up our soul with forgiveness should be part of our daily routine. As we clean our face before bedtime, we cleanse our souls by forgiving the offenses that were made during the day.
Why should we clean our soul with forgiveness? Because we must remove secretions from bitterness and resentment that were caused during the day in our being as a result of the offenses received. Similarly we must apply to ourselves cleaning forgiveness for our mistakes and continue to get rid of guilt. We grant forgiveness should respect the balance of our relationship with our offender and should not be reluctant to avoid irritating neighbor.
Many people live a miserable life only because they refused to forgive offenses received in an increasingly distant past. If you’re one of those people I want to give you two pieces of news. The first is that your offender has probably forgotten what he did to you and possibly the only offense remaining alive is in you. The second news is that forgiving will be better for you rather than anyone, as your lack of forgiveness will do more damage to you than it does to your offender. God bless you.
