Forgiving Changes us Forever

Forgiving Changes us Forever

Pastor Scott has done such a great job leading us through the series "Life's Healing Choices" we in Student Ministry wanted to strengthen the conversation on Tuesday nights.  So at Overflow we have been discussing together the concept of forgiveness.  Why is it so important to us in relationship to God and to others and how do we begin in practical ways to make forgiveness a habit.  This last week we began to discover how an unwillingness to forgive someone literally begins to change how we perceive that person, and how we need to separate the "wrong" from the person in order to have our hearts not become hard against them.  For some of us this might take some time because of how long we have known them and been living with a hurt or disappointment.   This coming Tuesday the group will be focusing on looking around our community and seeing those whose hurts have changed their perspective of God and how we might be able to help them heal that relationship.  Do you have an experience where forgiveness helped heal your relationship with someone you care for, try sharing that with your student this week as an encouragement to them and have a discussion about how forgiveness can set you free.
