I mean, maybe you have to do something. There is no judgment.
It’s like everyone I know has wounds, and some are small, kind of petty, like: And this other friend of mine, she was telling me that she doesn’t really have the same kind of beliefs as her family, and every time she goes to a family reunion, she said they all just turn on her, and they just get mean and angry, and she But this isn’t the kind of picture that Jesus paints of God. I can control the situation.
LUGGAGE – Rob Bell – NOOMA with English subtitles (closed captions) and transcript
It’s something you do. I mean, we talk like this all the time. I haven’t forgiven them. And may you do it today, because you might not have the chance tomorrow. I mean, have you ever really evened the score?
So whatever was done to you, whatever wrong was done to any of us, God saw it. God didn’t create you to carry that stuff around.
English French German Portuguese Spanish. Or maybe, like, just a business partner who took the money and ran, or a relative who abused you or a friend who, like, turned on you, and it’s like you try not think about it, but then if you’re like me, then you end up thinking about it more than ever, and it’s like you want to put this stuff behind us.
Maybe it’s a phone call or an e-mail, or some sort of face-to-face conversation, or maybe puggage is just that moment, like, where deep in, like, the very fiber of your being, you just say, “I’m not gonna carry that around for one more day. And he’s trying to kind of convince luggabe that luggag gonna be okay, but it doesn’t look nolma she is coming back. I mean, we luggagr about setting them free and letting it go, but maybe forgiveness is ultimately about me and about you, it’s about us.
Some people, we may not even be able to be around them. It’s like the cross is God’s way of saying: Maybe the real point of forgiveness isn’t other people. It’s ’cause, like, revenge But maybe it was somebody that lluggage really loved, or that you still love, and they left you. This person wronged me, and I can’t turn it over to You, because I don’t know what You’re gonna do here. What they did to me is so horrible, I will never forgive them.
It just gets ugly really fast, and she leaves in tears every time. May you set someone free and find out that it was you. Revenge is like part of our world, isn’t it?
It’s like we carry them with us everywhere we go. And after a while, these bags get heavy, don’t they?
Let God take care of it. He says he used to have, like, golf balls in the glove luggagd of his car. I mean, we’ve all wronged someone. So may you forgive as you’ve been forgiven. And so to forgive is to let it go, is to set them free, is to give up on the desire for revenge, but, ultimately, to really forgive somebody, I have to actually wish them well.
I don’t know how painful it is, or how heavy it is, or how long you’ve been carrying it around, but my question, or I think luggagf question, is always: It’s because revenge doesn’t work, does it? I think this is why freedom is so central to Jesus’ teachings. And we’re all laughing, but we’ve all done things like this, haven’t we?
I was talking to this girl I know the other day, this friend of mine, and part way through our conversation, she’s like: Free from feeling like you’re the judge of the world.
