Matt must have said this 18 times yesterday. Every time bringing a wince to my spine. He was quoting a clip from Gray’s Anatomy Season 2 that we showed. Then it became more of a truth.
At the end of his sermon he concluded…(loosely quoted)”Truth be told, I should have been able to walk out here and say that Jesus said to pray “”And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.”” But I can’t. I just had to spend 30 minutes convincing you of this truth.”
How it sucks. So easy to write a song about it. So easy to tell your unforgiving friend to just forgive. But when the ugly mess of bitterness and anger stares you square in the eyes…
How quick are you to forgive?
