FORGIVENESS

WHEN I ATTENDED MK’S WORK CONFERENCE IN UTAH, THE THEME WAS FORGIVENESS. THERE WAS A SPEAKER THERE WHO MADE A BIG IMPRESSION ON ME. AS I PLANNED MY YW LESSON, I RAN ACROSS A MORMON MESSAGE VIDEO OF HIM, AND I WANTED TO SHARE IT W/U:

I ACTUALLY TOOK NOTES (SO COOL!), & HE MENTIONED 3 TRAPS THAT CAN PREVENT US FROM FORGIVING:
1- THINKING, “I DON’T HAVE HOLES (IN MY BOAT)”
2- THINKING, “YOUR HOLES ARE BIGGER (IN YOUR BOAT), THAN MY HOLES (IN MY BOAT)”
3- THINKING, “I’M WORSE, & YOU ARE BETTER, BECUZ THE HOLES (IN MY BOAT) ARE BIGGER (THAN IN YOUR BOAT)”
& HE MENTIONED HOW WE SHOULD FORGIVE OURSELVES, BECUZ IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW BIG YOUR HOLES ARE, OR HOW MANY HOLES YOU HAVE.

I HAVE BEEN MARRIED QUITE AWHILE, & I THINK THE LONGER U ARE MARRIED, THE MORE NATURAL IT IS TO SEE THE HOLES IN THE BOAT OF YOUR SPOUSE, & FAMILY. BUT RECENTLY, I HAVE BEEN TAKING NOTICE OF THE HOLES IN MY OWN BOAT. HAVING A STROKE HAS SURE PUT A LOT OF HOLES IN MY BOAT, BUT MK IS STILL HERE. MANY STROKE SURVIVORS CAN’T SAY THE SAME THING. I WANTED TO THX MK 4 ACCEPTING ME, EVEN WITH THE HOLES IN MY BOAT, & 4 HIS & MY kidS HELP 2 PATCH UP THE HOLES IN MY BOAT!
