What does the seed of God’s word produce? Colossians 3:13 - forgiveness. Bear with each otherand forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Forgiveness in this verse is related to having a grievance against someone. They may not even know they have grieved you. Forgiveness shows up in our words about the one who has grieved us. Forgiveness is possible because of the cross of Christ.
