From a Creighton Student's Perspective

With truth and faith in God’s plan, it becomes easier to love and forgive. Relationships can sometimes be a struggle, and it is easy to get angry and say or think hurtful things. But in Matthew’s Gospel, he says you will not be free until you have reconciled with your brother. If we place our full trust in God, knowing that he has a plan for us and that his love is true, this is the first step towards forgiving our brother. Without truly loving God, we can’t truly love a person for everything that they are—good and bad. But it is necessary to love people that way—a truly agapic, self-giving love. A friend once told me that even if I don’t love people’s actions at all times, I still need to love them because they are children of God. This friend was a voice of truth in my life, reminding me of who I want to be and what it really means to love.
"Go first and be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your gift." -Matthew 5:24
