This Week at Centennial
Hi Centennial friends,
Why is it that those closest to us are the ones most willing to take advantage of us? And how do we get God's perspective on handling the changes that come from others Taking Advantage of us?
Those are some questions Rebecka Sutton will be raising this Sunday as we continue our look at Change. Here's a preview from her:
Family relationships are often the hardest to handle. In our attempt to help a family member out, we can find ourselves paying the price for our kindness. In Genesis 13, Abraham's nephew, Lot, takes advantage of his uncle's generosity. He selfishly chooses the better land, unconcerned about how this change will affect his uncle. Abraham must now move forward separated from his nephew, not knowing what changes lie ahead. When we read Genesis 13, we see a very human story, a story about conflict, kindness, selfishness, separation.
If you missed the first two sermons from Karl and me in this Change series, you can watch or listen HERE. Last week was a hard but important look at the ways fears can drive us into manipulative and even abusive behavior in our relationships, and how God leads us to face what's broken in our lives to bring healing. It included a moving personal story of redemption from Stefany Bergstrom. If you were not with us, I highly encourage you to take it in.
