People will stay divided until someone takes action: the action Jesus spoke of when He said, “Go to your brother.” We can go alone, or when appropriate, take others with us, but we must go if the cycle of mistrust is to be broken.

It can take years to form the deep divisions that keep families and former friends apart. And it may take just as long to heal those wounds. Today we’ll learn the steps to take to seek and find real reconciliation from the teachings of Jesus.
March 1, 2013
Jesus never complained when He suffered. So why do we haul fellow believers into court when we think we’ve been cheated? Maybe it’s because we think we can get justice from unbelieving judges. In reality, God wants us to get our justice from His hand. It’s better to suffer a wrong than to tarnish the name of Jesus in a court of law.

Making sure you get justice is a big deal in the world’s value system. That’s why so many people file lawsuits. When Christians absorb the world’s values, they file lawsuits along with everybody else. The Bible tells us that such actions defame the cause of Christ. Today: a call for believers to act like believers and let God be their final bar of justice.

It’s almost fashionable to sue someone these days. Court dockets are overflowing as people demand payback for injustice. Sadly, too many of these cases involve Christians, in violation of the New Testament. The Apostle Paul has some pointed words for those of us who’d like nothing better than to stick it to a fellow believer in court. Today, some counter-cultural teaching.

When you’re under constant attack, you cry out for God to intervene. When God deposed King Saul, David was anointed to be king of Israel. And Saul didn’t go quietly—he pursued David for ten years. So, what lessons was God teaching David—and us?
February 25, 2013
Saul didn’t like it when God removed him as Israel’s king. He spent ten years trying to kill his replacement: David. And like David, some of us have been on the receiving end of spears thrown by those who hate us. Today we’ll look at some of the techniques people use to destroy those they despise—and how believers should respond when they’re attacked.

Spear throwers. Some may call them destroyers. They’re self-absorbed and they’re out to make sure they look better than anyone else—and they will hurt people to keep appearances up. There are many people who are under constant attack by these destroyers. What drives these “spear throwers?”  And how do we, as believers, handle long-running attacks from others? Today, we’ll look at David and Saul for a biblical approach on what to do when reconciliation is not possible.

The best part about a feud is when it ends—when forgiveness terminates the acrimony and hatred. The Bible’s account of Joseph and his estranged family points the way for those of us trapped in family feuds.
February 20, 2013
Family feuds can last for centuries. Generation after generation nurse old grudges that keep people apart. But the cycle can be broken. Forgiving others dissolves years of hatred in mere moments. That’s what happened when Joseph forgave his brothers for selling him as a slave. Join us today for one of the most unforgettable episodes in all of the Bible.
