Chump Change

Almost as soon as our hearts were crushed God started speaking to us about forgiveness.

It's not "should" or "could" or "would" or "pretty please." It's a command from God. Fortunately, He also gives us the strength to do it.

So I have found myself forgiving those that hurt me over and over again. It's not a one time thing. Every time I feel angry or resentful, I know I need to forgive again.

I could expand on this for a long time, but my baby boy is going to be getting out of the shower soon, and I want to cuddle with him while he's wrapped in his hooded towel.

Read the last part of Matthew 18 in the bible. If you don't have a Bible, click here.

To listen to my pastor's sermon, which included a brief teaching of forgiveness, click here. It's the sermon that was preached on January 30, 2011; titled Ephesians 4:25-32 Part V. If you don't have time to listen to the whole thing, then click ahead to the last quarter of the sermon. Though I think it's worth your time to listen to the whole thing.
