• “You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.” – Amy Carmichael

Christ’s Example by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/31/11

“My son stole from me, lied to me, and took advantage of me. He messed up his kids, and now that he’s in jail—I’ve got to raise them!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Is forgiveness really possible in every situation?

“Don’t talk to me about forgiveness when I’m living with his bad choices every day!”

Nancy: When we’re deeply affected by other people’s sin, forgiveness might seem impossible—until we think about how our sin affected Jesus.

The Bible tells us, “He was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities . . . and by his wounds we are healed.”

Maybe you’re living with the effects of other people’s sin. Maybe it seems impossible to forgive. Why don’t you spend some time thinking about your sin—the sin that caused Jesus to suffer on the cross?

You can forgive others with the same forgiveness you’ve received from Him.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
