To return good for good is human.

To return good for bad is the way of Jesus.

This is a difficult conversation, but so worth talking about. I wanted to say something to people that find themselves thinking about past friendships and relationships where things didnโ€™t work out. It might not be the right thing to reach out to these people but there can be a hangover of pain weโ€™ve boxed off or not figured out what to do with.

I donโ€™t understand your pain.

I wonโ€™t have experienced the unique and painful events you have.

But I do know dealing with them can be liberating.

Tom Lancaster shared a quote (that Iโ€™ve likely misquoted in the video!), he said,

โ€œSilence. All human unhappiness comes from not knowing how to stay quietly in a room. I feel engulfed in the infinite immensity of spaces whereof I know nothing, and which know nothing of me, I am terrified The eternal silence of these infinite spaces alarms me.โ€

Blaise Pascal

Wow. That was nearly 400 hundred years ago.

Also this thought from Nicky Gumble has always stuck with me (and I just riffed on):

โ€œTo return bad for good is evil. To return good for good is human. To return good for bad is the way of Jesus.โ€

And I attempted, but completely forgot this thought:

"Unforgiveness is like drinking poison yourself and waiting for the other person to die."

Marianne Williamson

To return good for good is human.

To return good for bad is the way of Jesus.
