Fellowship Friday!

20 Jun

I just love this weeks story! A mother of 4 from Guthrie, Oklahoma who is an active member in a Christian outreach group in her church, was at her local grocery store. When she noticed her wallet had been stolen. Thinking she knew who had taken it she approached the man. Now instead of reacting the way that most of us would she said this…….

“You either give me my wallet and I’ll forgive you right now, and I’ll even take you up front and pay for your groceries” or call the police.

Obviously the man apologized like crazy for stealing her wallet. He gave it back to her. Now is the very best part of this story. True to her promise she took him to the till and payed for his $27 worth of groceries!!!!! She actually forgave him on the spot, like nothing! You can really see her Christ love through this act! Her response to her actions was beautiful!

“If someone slaps you on the cheek, offer the other one as well. If someone takes you coat don’t withhold your shirt too” Luke 6:29

Honestly I don’t know what my reaction would have been, but hearing this beautiful story of grace encourages me that should I ever be faced with a situation like this I will certainly react much differently. God bless all of you and thank you for sharing in my fellowship friday! I pray you all have a God filled weekend!

    That is sooo awesome.
    With the world we live in i’m sure it would have been tough for anyone else to do what she did.
    But with what she did brang out some good in him to i think because he admitted to what he did and apologized for it.
    It was a guilty conscious that was shown.

      Right?! She may have shown him the grace of God and in turn he himself turned to The Lord!
