Being forgiven when I do not deserve it is stressful

Forgiven  |  November 30

If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;
For so you will heap coals of fire on his head, and the LORD will reward you.

Proverbs 25:21-22


Father, we know it is Your will that we take care of Your children, whether they are being obedient or not. When we have an opportunity and they have a need, it was an appointment made by You. You have taught us to love our neighbors as ourselves. You have said elsewhere, “They will know us by our love”.

Your word teaches that when we help someone who does not deserve it, by their own judgment, it presents a very perplexing problem for that person. We have responded in love and they were expecting rejection. It is truly better to give than to receive. In Jesus’ Holy name, we pray, amen.

September 27, 2020 Are we required to teach God's word to our kids? September 26, 2020 My heart stands in awe of Your word...Really it does! September 25, 2020 So, how dangerous, in the eyes of God, is it to offend a child? September 24, 2020 You don't know me! I gave money, sang in the choir and on and on. September 23, 2020 I have no gifts...thus I have no responsibilities. Right? September 22, 2020 To be forgiven enables you to forgive September 21, 2020 Am I my brother's keeper...yes, more than I thought. September 20, 2020 Do we have access to "certainty" about eternal matters? September 19, 2020 I slip, too often, but You lift me up, repeatedly September 18, 2020 Your age in heaven? Neither old nor young. Babies? Old people? No.
