Mean People Teach us to Forgive
In one sense, if someone is making life difficult for us at church, we owe them some thanks. That's because, as Christians, God wants us to forgive them, so our own sins can also be forgiven. If everything behaved perfectly, there'd be nothing to forgive, and nothing to forgive.
Of course, this is much easier said than done, and it's infinitely easier when viewing a church mobbing from the benefit of hindsight. Our family was driven from our place of worship several years ago, during one of the most difficult times of my life. Forgiveness is hard and it takes time. Eventually, though, it's possible.
I recently read a very insightful post on Pinterest that talked about forgiveness. It pointed out that the people in Heaven have one thing in common. Their sins were forgiven by our most loving and merciful God. Also, these same people forgave others.
