“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.” Luke 6:37
Including Sam, each student was required to bring a clear plastic bag to class. Then they would write a name on a potato and drop it into the bag. Each potato represented a person that student refused to forgive. They were expected to carry this bag with them wherever they went all that week. And Sam’s bag was heavy!
Of course, the point was that Sam carried a spiritual weight of unforgiveness. Hers was a cumbersome burden. And a smelly one by the end of the week! Oh, those smelly potatoes!
Oh, dear one, forgiveness is powerful. When you choose to forgive, the weight is released. Anger, frustration and fear will be divinely lifted. Sam learned that never-to-be forgotten lesson.
You can too.
Who might you need to forgive?
