Forgiveness After Many Years

Forgiveness After Many Years

Wellness Work on a big apple farm in the Elgin Valley near Grabouw  Pieter has only done 2 sessions (4 hours) on the misuse of alcohol, with the accompanied DVD Wanneer die Dop Skop, when this one young farm worker became very upset

What does it take to understand forgiveness, and to be able to forgive somebody?

Wellness Work on a big apple farm in the Elgin Valley near Grabouw:  Pieter has only done 2 sessions (4 hours) on the misuse of alcohol, with the accompanied DVD Wanneer die Dop Skop, when this one young farm worker became very upset:

He was a heavy drinker!  The message was spot on.

This was followed by 4 Sessions (8 hours) on Forgiveness:

On the cross, Jesus extended his forgiveness to all, saying  Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.  (Luke 23:34).  There is no indication as to how many of these people accepted Jesus forgiveness.  But what we do see is that forgiveness can be given without being asked for by the guilty party.  What conditions do we demand before being willing to forgive someone?  We cannot truly grant forgiveness until we grasp just how much we are in need of it ourselves.  (Romans 3:23  . . . For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God).  [Heartlines]

For the first time in his life, this man came to a clear understanding of the concept of forgiveness.  He went back to his parents, asked their forgiveness, and forgave them as well.

For the first time in many years he experienced peace!
