IN THE WAKE of the death of George Floyd, we hear many reasons as to what is wrong with our society and how to fix it. Why such hate, racism, and even murder – and not only here in America but all around the world, and throughout all of history? Where is this all coming from? There is no need for speculation here as God’s revealed Word provides the answer: “For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.” (Matthew 15:19)
While there is much that we can do to help make practical and preventive reforms where needed, what is most needed is a change in the attitude of the heart and mind. Again, God’s revealed Word informs us how this transformation takes place – that being as His Holy Spirit works to make our hearts and minds new in relationship to Christ!

This Is The Life program is: “Tragedy Near a Small Town-Justice or Mercy?” Tragedy in a small town results in a loving father holding a grudge rather than forgiving as our Father has forgiven us.
