What I loved....
About this past Sunday...Pastor Kim is preaching this AMAZING series called "The Golden Key..Unlocking Winning Relationships". It has been so powerful already. Let me just give you a few points that really spoke to me. This for one....it rings true for so many people in my life. It's the Pain Principle and it says: Hurting people hurt people and are easily hurt. WOW!! I was just really challenged to remember this. People have been hurt and that is why many times they react the way they do. We need to remember to see them with our Father's eyes. Luke 23:34 Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing". This is something else that also made me think hard about myself...we need to be quick to listen and to understand, NOT to express our point of view. GUILTY!! I am so guilty of this....I could blame it on my personality, but...really, I need to be more careful of what I say. I will try and work on this. James 1:19-20 My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. For man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. These principles are taken from this book. We are reading it right now for small group and we are really enjoying it. But...my most favorite part about Sunday was this video...get out your kleenex...trust me...you'll need them!!
