Live in Peace by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/01/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: It seems like everybody is suing everybody else. That makes one husband’s choice seem all the more extraordinary.

During a routine procedure, a doctor’s mistake cost him the life of his wife. In the days that followed, he promised to “bring down that hospital!” He demanded a meeting with administrators and vowed to sue them for everything they had.

On the way to the meeting, this husband realized that he was heading into a dungeon of anger and bitterness and to be free, he’d have to do what God had done for him.

When he got to the hospital, he walked directly to the doctor who had operated on his wife. He reached out his hand and said, “The only way I’m going to be able to live with any peace the remainder of my life is to forgive you.”

Are you harboring any anger or bitterness? Would you choose to forgive as God has forgiven you?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “They only did what God permitted them to do, which enabled me always to keep God in sight… When we suffer, we should always remember that God inflicts the blow. Wicked men, it is true, are not infrequently His instruments; and the fact does not diminish, but simply develops their wickedness. But when we are so mentally disposed that we love the strokes we suffer, regarding them as coming from God, and as expressions of what He sees best for us, we are then in the proper state to look forgivingly and kindly upon the subordinate instrument which He permits to smite us.” – Madame Guyon

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
