He says he used to have, like, golf balls in the glove compartment of his car. So may you forgive as you’ve been forgiven.

But sometimes forgiving is remembering, and some people are gonna keep returning to their vomit, and we don’t have to be there when they do. But we need to forgive, and we need to start today. English French German Lyggage Spanish. So even when it comes to doing the right thing, like in this case, forgiveness, there is this paranoia that if they step out of line nomoa all, God’s, like, waiting there to squash them.

Let God take care of it. There is no judgment. I mean, we talk like this all the time.

There is no list of wrongs. I mean, have you ever really evened the score?

May you set someone free and find out that it was you. Jesus gives us these ljggage of a God who is, like, full of love and grace and mercy and forgiveness, who, like, keeps pursuing us and who keeps insisting that His way is the best possible way to live.

And after a while, these bags nkoma heavy, don’t they? But what about those people, like the kind that are gonna hurt us again and again, and we may forgive them, but they’ll just keep liggage us. I have to hope that good comes their way, ’cause if I’m still unable to wish them well and wish them good, then I’m really just waiting for them to get punished, and I really We need to do it today.

It’s something you do. Maybe it’s a phone call or an e-mail, or some sort of face-to-face conversation, or maybe there is just that moment, like, where deep in, like, the very fiber of your being, you just say, “I’m not gonna carry that around for one nooms day.

This person wronged me, and I can’t turn it over to You, because I don’t know what You’re gonna do here. So, like any runny nose or any freak accident, anything bad that happens, people assume it’s God punishing them ’cause they weren’t doing the noo,a thing at that time or that everything is some sort of judgment or punishment.
