We have all been the antagonist in at least one chapter of someone’s story.
We are not always the hero.
We are not always the victim.
SOMETIMES, WE WERE THE DARK SIDE!
Sometimes we were the monster.
OUR CULTURE CREATES MONSTERS WHO THINK THEY’RE HEROES!
How many people have you given a good reason to hate you?
How many people has the enemy used you as a stumbling block?
Sometimes we were Pharaoh.
Sometimes we were Peter.
Sometimes we were Judas.
Always be willing to forgive, even when you feel they do deserve it, because there’s always someone who feels we don’t.
Think about all the times God watched us deny, and betray Him…yet He still is always ready to forgive us.
He expects us to do the same.
Ephesians 4:31-32 (CJB)
31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, violent assertiveness and slander, along with all spitefulness. 32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted; and forgive each other, just as in the Messiah God has also forgiven you.
