How many of us have had conflict in our homes? I’m not talking about spats, but family members NOT talking for weeks, months, and even sometimes years. I know of a family who had a conflict that lasted so long between two brothers that one passed away and the other couldn’t even remember what the fight was about. Both were too proud to forgive. As Christ followers we’re expected to forgive even if we’re not asked. In the sermon on the mount Jesus said “If you don’t forgive neither will the father forgive you.” My biggest concern? Are we a good tree or a bad tree? A good tree bears good fruit. Moms and Dads, what kind of tree are you?
