Marcy S., age 62, North Carolina

Yesterday I talked with Brother Oscar and Sister Nellie about Mark and Sandra W. In his last letter Mark asked if he could bring Sandra W. to Tarboro so that we could meet her. Emily and Sarah will probably come, too, and I wasn’t just sure whether I could open my heart and home to Sandra or not. “To make a long story short” Oscar and Nellie pointed out that Jesus loved sinners and that love is capable of breaking down a person’s resistance much more than judgment and condemnation. Mark knows how I feel about his living in adultery with Sandra, but I am still to love him and her without condemnation.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for changing my heart attitude toward them.
