The US government currently owes 16.805 trillion dollars in debt that’s R166,353,197,386,656! If each of the 313,914,040 Americans made a once off donation of R529,934.67 their debt would be paid off…

Jesus once told a parable to point out the similarly massive debt we all owe God because of our sinfulness. It’s a debt that gets instantly paid off if we have faith in Jesus (read Matthew 18:21-35 here http://bit.ly/q2eVgK)..

Jesus then says that we need to forgive or release others from the things they owe us – even the little things. Is there someone you can surprise this week by forgiving them and releasing them from something they owe you?

Know anyone who is hurting themselves, others or Jesus with their choices? Care enough to help or confront them? This week a social-media-battle erupted between Miley Cyrus and Sinead O’Connor. O’Connor wrote a letter to Cyrus ‘in a spirit of motherliness and love’ challenging her recent sexualised appearances. Cyrus didn’t like it and… KABOOM!

Here’s how to help your friend: ‘Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day’s out. Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law. If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived.’
Galatians 6:1 (http://bit.ly/15OehWs)

How easy is it to say goodbye? Mwah on the cheek and, “See you Later!” as you go out to the door…

This past week heavily armed gunmen attacked civilians in a mall in Kenya, killing 67 and wounding over 200. How many of them had family who didn’t get to say, “goodbye,” or, “I love you,” or, “I’m sorry,” or, “I forgive you…”

Don’t leave things unsaid or unresolved. Romans 12:18 says, “If possible, on your part, live at possible with everyone.” Who do you need to make peace with, or say “I love you”?

Ever been hurt while trying to help someone? By whom? Did you stand up for your rights?

This week two high school teachers were attacked by learners in their classes: at Glen Vista a 14 year old boy attacked his teacher with a broom on Wednesday (http://bit.ly/18fcNkP) and in Vereeniging, a grade 9 shot his teacher in the leg on Friday (http://bit.ly/1bvsTfa)..

Jesus was killed by those he came to help! And He forgave them, making a way for them to become part of His family! Jesus prayed, Father, forgive them; they don’t know what they’re doing.

Who is hurting you? How can you forgive and love them?
