Family Feuds: Seeing God In Injustice

October 24, 2010
Families can be torn apart by feuds: long-running animosities usually caused by someone’s past unjust actions.  Whether due to some imagined or real hurt, or to an inheritance wrongly divided, some feuds go on for generations.  Unless the cycle is broken, hatred can consume blood relatives.  Is there a way out?

Eliphaz the Temanite told Job, “Man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.” And trouble is what two brothers had. Jacob and Esau are classic examples of how different two children can be. Like in any family, conflict was almost inevitable. Jacob the younger connived the birthright of Esau the older brother, and the lifelong battle began. Today you will hear lessons from the family of Isaac.

Jesus said “the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy.” Some people are destroyers, intent on ruining the lives of others.   This kind of person is typified in the Bible by Cain, who, in a fit of rage, killed his own brother at the dawn of humanity.

Spanish bullfighters often use a bright red cloth to enrage “El Toro” the bull and get him to charge, thus the expression “seeing red” when we get offended.   When someone treats us badly our first reaction is to strike back.  But as Christians, we’re called upon to respond quite differently.  As the Apostle Paul taught the believers in Corinth, is it not better to suffer wrong, than to sue a fellow believer?

We are all conditioned to expect instant gratification. We take a pill and expect the pain to go away. When hungry, we buy fast food. Waiting for any reason seems unreasonable, after all, there’s too much to do to be stuck not doing anything. Many would find the words of King David in Psalm 37 out of sync: “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently before Him.” Today we learn some lessons from a great king on remembering who is really in charge of our lives.

No psychiatrist’s couch can set us free from the inner turmoil of sin. When we violate God’s commands, the only thing that can relieve the distress is the knowledge that we’ve been forgiven. Having sinned greatly, King David knew this very well. He wrote of his personal experience of forgiveness in Psalm 32, and today we will walk with him down the path toward renewed fellowship with God.

Some people see God as distant and uninvolved. But one Psalm portrays God’s care for His people as that of a shepherd for his sheep. King David wrote the beloved Psalm 23 to capture this care with a word-picture that has never been equaled.

Some say God created the world like a clock. He wound it up and is now letting it run down. But the Bible tells us otherwise. God is not indifferent to what’s happening on planet earth; in the scriptures we see how engaged He really is. In fact, history is moving toward an inevitable conclusion: the return of Jesus to this earth.

These days we’re pressured to accept all kinds of things that dishonor God, things like same-sex marriage and so-called abortion rights. We are told to be tolerant of alternate lifestyles, but when as Christians we present the gospel, we’re attacked as intolerant bigots.

As the central figure in all of human history, Jesus Christ stands alone as the mediator between God and man. No one has ever commanded people’s allegiance, and hatred, as has the Jesus who lived 2,000 years ago. While some say it is OK to believe in God, they recoil at believing in Jesus. Today we will join Pastor Lutzer in an honest look at the claims Jesus made, and the choice all of us must make regarding the Son of God.

While there is a guarantee that God will forgive us for great sins against others, there is no guarantee that those we have wronged will forgive us. The damage may be too deep for healing to ever take place or, those we have wronged may no longer be alive. How do we handle the pain of torn relationships, torn because of our bad choices?
