    Many of us have someone in our lives who has done some crazy, hurtful thing to us or, maybe even more importantly, to somebody that we love. In our minds we think, “I know the Christian thing to do is to forgive, so I will. I will forgive him as soon as he gives me an apology.”

  • How to Give Grace to the Irritable

    When you’re dealing with people who are offensive or irritating, you need to look past the behavior to the pain. Because everything we do is motivated by something. When people hurt others, it’s because they’re hurting on the inside. Hurt people hurt people.

    What do you remember about people — the good experiences or the bad experiences? The apostle Paul said, “I like to remember the good things about people, focus on the good times we’ve had, and remember the positive experiences.”

  • Integrity vs. Popularity

    One day, you’ll give an account of your life before God. When you keep that in mind and have that kind of long-term thinking, it’s going to change what you say, what you do, and who you try to impress. It’s the people-pleaser antidote.

    How often do you play the “If only” game? • If only I could do it over again. • If only I had listened sooner. • If only I could erase the past. • If only I could forgive myself.

    Nothing crushes the spirit more than abuse — to feel devalued, unimportant, and misused. Jesus knows that. And he says, “I will care for you.”

  • God Wants to Give You Freedom

    11-09-16-Forgiveness-God-Wants-To-Give-Your-Freedom

    The world defines freedom as a life without any restraint — “I can do anything I want to do and say anything I want to say without anybody telling me what to do.” You may burn everybody else, but you get to do it your own way. The world says you can have your freedom, but only by being totally selfish.

    Your pain often reveals God’s purpose for you. God never wastes a hurt! If you’ve gone through a hurt, he wants you to help other people going through a similar hurt. He wants you to share it. God can use the problems in your life to give you a ministry to others. In fact, the very thing you’re most ashamed of in your life and resent the most, could become your greatest ministry in helping other people.
