I was sharing with the folk on Sunday how I had a bad debtor to my small gotcha187. The situation was becoming increasingly unpleasant. As I prayed, read the word and meditated I felt the Lord gave me me an answer.

I wrote a letter to that bad debtor saying that, since the Lord had forgiven me so much more and has instructed me to forgive I had chosen to forgive him and free him from his debt. I then reminded him of the far greater forgiveness he has received from God through our Lord Jesus Christ and invited him to commit his life into God's care. He came to visit me and I was further able to establish him in the truth. He promised to pay his debt but I told him that was not necessary since I had forgiven him. I reminded him that God does not forgive us and then hold us to our debt and that forgiveness that demanded payment was not really forgiveness at all.

I have to confess that I have not had a bad debt since then and, as I lightly told the church folk, I rather assume that the devil won't allow it as he always seeks to prevent the gospel from being preached. I also advise others in business to make the most of their opportunities and, if they have bad debtors follow my example.

In Christ,

Kerry

It seems when we really put our faith into practice....that is when people come to Christ or are at least more receptive!
