Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit

Watch | Listen

Some families have some weird rules about what is forgivable and what is unforgivable. 

  • Like whether the toilet paper goes over or under on the roll.
Correct Answer: Over
  • Or whether the toothpaste tube should be squeezed in the middle (like it is by the barbarian I live and work with) or flattened up from the end, like a polite person should do. 
  • I once overheard a woman scream at her child from across a park, “You put that down! We are a Pepsi family!”

Knowing what’s forgivable and what’s not is how we stay in a family, or a group of friends, or a community. And usually, no one comes right out and says what’s unforgivable.

Usually we find that out that key piece of information right after we did whatever it happens to be.

But Jesus comes right out and tells us what the only thing is that we can’t do.

Forgiveness and Resentments

Watch | Listen

I have a notoriously bad memory. I can’t remember anything. Which is funny because at least half of Megan’s and my conversations involve reminiscing. and I really love them because for me it’s like storytime! Megan tell me great stories about when the kids were little, or things we did in New York and she assures me that I was there! And I’m sure I was. But I sure can’t remember. At least not the details.

I do however have perfect recall of every time I’ve been hurt! And especially for every time someone hurt or was less than kind and considerate to someone in my family. There are 12-14 year olds in Ohio who I would probably recognize right now because they wouldn’t share with Mac or Andrew 10 years ago. They’re still on my list and they’d better watch their backs. No, not really. I forgive all of them, if they even did anything wrong.

It’s just funny how memories work. At least how mine works, or doesn’t. Beautiful perfect days all fade into each other and eventually away. But anything unpleasant? 4K HD resolution forever.
Our memories are like that with resentments.
