Yesterday I saw my elderly neighbor at the end of my morning run. When he commented on my running outfit, I told him that the reason I run is to be as healthy as he is when I am as old as he is.
He responded by saying,
My grandmother told me that to live a long life, I always need to forgive those who hurt me.
This is a man who lived for 50 years under communism and now for another 20+ years in the roller coaster of uncertainty that has followed, and yet he has not forgotten the seeds of truth planted in him by his grandmother.
It is now my opportunity and responsibility to water those seeds – to help my neighbor discover God and the fullness of forgiveness that is found only in him.
- What seeds have been planted by someone else in the people you are called to disciple?
- What are some ways that you can water that seed?
