Let all acquaintance be forgotten: Let by gones, be by gones.

The song let all acquaintance be forgotten and never come to mind was a poem written by Robert Burns in 1788. Although it is a song that reminds me, having one drink in one hand sitting awaiting for the clock to strike 12 midnight to say happy new-year in those BC days. As I continue to reflect on this song all those in the church that have hurt, manipulated us we call our brothers and sisters in Christ. Let all acquaintance be forgotten and never come to mind. Knowing that our father forgave us and we should forgive those acquaintance that has cause pain to our lives.  It seems that this time of year is the most depressing time where we hear of suicides and many that will not see the coming year. Many of us will be caught up in the lights and fashion of Christmas and Thanksgiving we forget the true essence of it.  However, the true essence of this time of year is love it is a reminder of the love that God have given us.  God loves us so much we should take a moment and reflect on those that he gave us as family, as friends, as Leaders in his body. God showed his love for humanity by given us his Son who came in the flesh. During this time of year we should consider others, letting them know that we care and love them. Let us put aside all malice and backbiting against our brothers and sisters but show whose we are in the body of Christ by showing love one towards the other. It does not matter what they may have done or how they may have treated you, let by gone be by gone and encourage that person reminding and showing them that God loves you and so do I.
