It is a vicious cycle: human conflict tends to spawn more conflict. There is no end to "getting even" until someone gives up. One of the deepest ruts on the racetrack of life is carved out when you are the victim of someone's vengeance...someone who may never forgive you. Today: the counseling room is open...you are about to get some biblical advice on what to do.

When you try to swat a bee, be sure he will try to sting you. And when you hurt other people, they may just try to hurt you back. One thing kids learn real quick is how to get even. Taking revenge is a natural reaction when we are offended. But the Scriptures command us to not seek revenge. Today: rising above our instincts and allowing God to be the one who makes things right.

Someone has said, "I love the church…it is the people in it I cannot stand." Whenever people interact, people can have conflict. The Apostle Paul wrote, "If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men." This means extending forgiveness and seeking reconciliation when conflicts arise. Today: some practical "how-to" advice.

It seems that conflict is inevitable. Even if we do no wrong, someone out there is all set to do some wrong to us. Resolving the resulting conflicts can be as painful as it is necessary. We must extend forgiveness even when every emotion in us tells us to "get even" instead. Today: more practical counsel on reconciliation: making things right with God and man.

When we have been hurt, our first instinct is often to "get even." In one sense, there is a time and place for getting even. After we have sought reconciliation with someone we have hurt, there may be the need to make things right...to pay back what is owed...to undo the damage we have done. Today: advice on how to repair a broken relationship so that it stays fixed.

Americans look forward to the Thanksgiving holiday as a time of gathering with friends and relatives, a time of shared happiness. But many among us dread times like this because it means facing people who have hurt us, or worse, people we have hurt. Unresolved conflicts are the collateral damage of sin, even forgiven sin. Today: putting damaged relationships back on track.

"All the King's horses and all the King's men couldn't put Humpty together again." There is truth even in fairy tales. Sin's consequences usually involve ruptured relationships. Sometimes we are the abused, sometimes we are the abusers of others. Either way, we need to find reconciliation if life is to go on. Today: lessons in putting shattered lives back together.
May 14, 2008
We can do a lot of damage when we sin. Even though forgiven, sin can leave some serious consequences in its wake. Handling the ongoing pain we have caused is a daunting, but necessary task. Today: we will begin to learn how to seek forgiveness from those we have hurt, and then watch God graciously bring new life and new hope out of our bad situations.

It has been said that those who ignore the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. That is also true when it comes to sin. Running the race of life is a lot easier when we avoid the ruts in the road, and the ruts in our lives. Today: some pointed reminders that God wants us as Christians to turn away from the sins that so easily, and frequently, beset us.
May 12, 2008
There are certain laws built into the fabric of the universe...gravity...the speed of light...and the laws of sowing and reaping. You cannot avoid gravity, and you cannot change the speed of light. Neither can you buck the system that says "what you reap, you sow." God uses this principle to teach His children to not sin, and sometimes the lessons are hard. If you find it tough to stop sinning, stay with us.
