What does the Bible mean when it says, “A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense” (Proverbs 19:11 NIV). #DailyHope #patience https://goo.gl/01Kx10

When people are offensive or irritating, look past their behavior to their pain. When people are hurting others, it’s because they’re hurting on the inside. #DailyHope https://goo.gl/01Kx10

Showing mercy usually requires a sacrifice of time, energy, money, or even your reputation. #DailyHope Devotionals http://bit.ly/2p60f1h

If you are serious about restoring a relationship, you should begin with admitting your own mistakes or sin. Jesus said it’s the way to see things more clearly: “First get rid of the log from your own eye; then perhaps you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.”
Since we all have blind spots, you may need to ask a third party to help you evaluate your own actions before meeting with the person with whom you have a conflict. Also ask God to show you how much of the problem is your fault. Ask, “Am I the problem? Am I being unrealistic, insensitive, or too sensitive?” The Bible says, “If we claim that we’re free of sin, we’re only fooling ourselves.”

Don’t wait, don’t delay, and don’t procrastinate. When you see a need, do what you can at that moment. #DailyHope

You see pain with your eyes, but you sympathize with your ears. Sometimes the greatest way to serve someone is just by listening. #DailyHope https://goo.gl/01Kx10

It doesn’t matter whether you are the offender or the offended: God expects you to make the first move. Don’t wait for the other party. Go to them first. Restoring broken fellowship is so important, Jesus commanded that it even takes priority over group worship. He said, “If you enter your place of worship and, about to make an offering, you suddenly remember a grudge a friend has against you, abandon your offering, leave immediately, go to this friend and make things right. Then and only then, come back and work things out with God." Learn More - http://purposedriven.com #PurposeDrivenLife

On Holy Saturday, April15, the world lost a giant of the faith, Johann Christoph Arnold.

Christoph had served as a pastor of the Bruderhof Communities for 43 years, as Elder for 18 years, and as Senor Elder since 2001.

Christoph was a passionate leader and author of 12 books that sold millions, including Why Forgive? his most famous book. He always went right to the root of life’s problems - whether writing about marriage and family, racism, peacemaking, death and dying, forgiveness, faith, and moral purity.

I met Christoph in the most unlikely place for both of us: in Rome at the Vatican. Pope Francis had invited both of us as non-Catholics to speak on the biblical meaning of marriage at his Vatican conference on marriage and family.

Although I had already loved reading many of his books, meeting Christoph made me love him even more. His quiet humility, his contagious smile and laugh, his deep love for both Jesus and people, and his passion for peacemaking evidenced the true spirit of Christ. I look forward to long discussions with him in Heaven one day. I thank God for the life of Christoph Arnold.

Some of Christoph’s last words were ones he shared on Palm Sunday, just days before his passing:

“The main thing is that God’s kingdom advances, and if any one of us had the chance to play a little part in it, it’s not because we are great or mighty, but because God is merciful and he’s granting us the possibility to show love. God is the Creator of everything. All he wants in return is that we love and worship him, and most of all Thank Him!” —Johann Christoph Arnold,

If you have not ready any of his books, go to Amazon and start with Why Forgive.
Our love and prayers go out to sweet Verena, all the family, and all of our dear brothers at sisters of Bruderhof. We thank God for you all.
