“How to Win the Blame Game, Part 3: LET GO”, the final part of my current series: Sun, 7/26, 9:30 a.m, Bryn Athyn Church School auditorium!

Recap of the series so far:

1) “Know When Not to Forgive” – ALWAYS forgive. Forgiveness has three parts: a) you let go of your feelings of resentment and/or of being “owed”; b) the other person repents of any evil they’ve done; c) the Lord works to slowly change them from the inside. You and I cannot repent for someone else, nor can we change them, so all that is left to us is letting go and forgiving.

2) “Follow the Rules of Forgiveness” – There are processes, both internal and external, to help you with forgiveness. Internal process goes like this: a) check to see if you are correct; b) consider what other truths are relevant; and c) look at the situation in light of the big picture and of the general teachings of the Word. If after all that you STILL can’t forgive, then tell yourself that they either don’t know any better, or at the least that they are weak (as we all are), and then you STILL have to forgive.Read More

This week, part 3 is all about monks, stones, poison and luggage.
