I spent the last six weeks entrenched with a dynamic group of young people. As always, I end up learning more from them than I could ever teach them. There is something magical about youth and being child-like. Over the course of our time together we bonded as a family. We fought with each other […]
One of the biggest hurts in the human experience is when we get hurt by someone very close to us. To add onto the pain, the person is oblivious to the infraction and/or is not interested in mending the hurt. The gravity of the issue can render a person broken to the core. How do we deal with the situations? Do we hate the person forever? Do we excuse the behavior? Do we allow ourselves to grow bitter?
The biggest breakthrough in your life will occur the moment you realize that a person is a human being before they whoever they are to you. Being human is an interesting thing. We are so complex yet simple at the same time. We do things which to us make perfect sense, but can be harmful or offensive to others. While I know this won’t change everything it does help you embrace forgiveness faster. Think about a time you’ve been misunderstood, and wanted to be forgiven.
Now try to place to take that feeling and perspective and apply it to the person who has hurt you. Again, I’m not saying this is going to be easy, but it’s a powerful step forward for you. We if anything, are perfectly human. We are flawed, broken and yet loveable at the same time. What a wonder God has made in us.
Remember we have the ability to not only change our world, but the world as a whole….BE GREAT!!
