February 9th Luncheon

Speaker:
Leigh Walters

Topic:
"Forgiveness"

The Bible commands us to forgive as we have been forgiven.  But does that mean the offender gets off the hook?  How does that apply to the injustices in the world?  How do I forgive when the offender hasn’t even acknowledged the offense or asked for forgiveness?  If I forgive does that mean I am obligated to reconcile?  We all are offended by the actions or words of others whether done intentionally or unintentional.  

Join us as Leigh shares from her heart what she has learned about forgiveness; what it looks like, why it is good for us, what we are responsible for and what God is responsible for. Come, join us, your heart is certain to be encouraged and in these days and times we all need a little encouragement, it strengthens our heart and brightens our day.  

Based on the foundational truths found in Romans 12:17-21: "Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for Godís wrath, for it is written: 'It is mine to avenge; I will repay,' says the Lord. On the contrary: 'If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.' Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."
