As parents, grandparents, uncles/aunts, teachers, and caregivers, children look to us for acceptance. They want to know that they are worthy of our love and respect because of who they are (i.e., fellow human beings), not because of what they have done. So, how we handle their accomplishments and disappointments can leave a profound and lasting effect.
This week, for Christians, is Holy Week, which recounts the drama of Jesus’s arrest, death, and resurrection.
Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Most of us have heard of WIFM – What’s In it For Me? I’ve come across this in various contexts, sometimes portrayed positively and other times negatively.
In forgiveness discussions, WIFM comes across as, “Why should I forgive that louse?” or “Doesn’t my forgiveness just let him off the hook?” Both followed by, “What’s in it for me?”
Season of Forgiveness encourages and equips people to live happier, healthier, more productive lives through understanding and acceptance.
