A Note from Pastor Dinger

There once was a little girl who had a fight with her sister. As the day went on, she refused to speak to her sister. Finally, at bedtime, their mother said, "Don't you think you should forgive your sister before you go to sleep? The Bible says we should not let "the sun go down on our anger." The little girl thought for a moment and replied, “Mom, help me keep the sun from going down."

How true it is for us that we would rather hold on to our anger than to forgive.  We like to nurture our resentment.  We think that if we hold on to that anger we will hurt the other person and make them miserable.  But in the end resentment and unforgiveness only hurts us.  Jesus tells us a more excellent way to live – to love our neighbor as ourselves.  To love as we have been loved. 

Let us heal ourselves and forgive as we have been forgiven.
