“I think forgiveness is a great idea until you have someone to forgive.” Ed Dobson
I watched an incredible video on forgiveness today and I want to share it with you. Ed Dobson was the pastor of a large church for many years before he was diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or “Lou Gehrig’s disease”).
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
When Ed stepped down from pastoring his church, he discovered the emptiness of life caused by unreconciled relationships.
How many of us have relationships that require forgiveness? I know I have too many to count!
Enjoy the 10 minute video and I pray that someday we all can say, “The list is done” as we look for opportunities to forgive and to ask for forgiveness. ~Matt
