We never seem to fully graduate from junior high.
Remember when you always had someone that you were “mad at?" It was like a list that you kept. Mine was almost as long as my bangs.
Usually that person used to be your BFF, and they looked at your boyfriend wrong, so then you were mad at them.
We’d like to think that we grew up, but we’re all really stuck in 7th grade.
Heard this at church over the weekend.
"If you want to represent Jesus to the world and you have unforgiveness in your life then you’re doing it in an unforgiving way. That doesn’t work."
No wonder people don’t like church. I once heard someone say that God has a PR problem because we’re all going around saying things about him that aren’t true.
I wanted to truly know Jesus and make him known but I have people in my life that I need to forgive. Those that hurt me when my marriage ended. I literally fell on my knees and prayed, "Lord, help me to forgive them."
Maybe you’ve got a situation like that too in your life, someone you could let go of being mad at and forgive.
To fully understand how much God loves you and forgives you, you have to pick someone in your life who has hurt you then forgive them and love them anyway. It's not going to be easy, but that is why we rely on God.
