Like, I don’t know what you’re carrying around. Like completely crazy things ’cause we were just so bent on revenge and evening the score, and revenge doesn’t satisfy, does it?

It’s like you can’t shake it and can’t leave it behind, so then eventually what happens is revenge becomes our only hope, and we aren’t free. I mean, forgiving is an action. I mean, we talk like this all the time. If he’s hitting you, or you’re being abused, you need to get out, and you need to get out now, because some people, toxic dangerous people, they may need to live with the consequences of what they’ve done.

But we need to forgive, and we need to start today. May you set someone free and find out that it was you. I mean, have you ever really evened the score? I mean, we talk about setting them free and letting it go, but maybe forgiveness is ultimately about me and about you, it’s about us. And may you do it today, because you might not have the chance tomorrow.

LUGGAGE – Rob Bell – NOOMA with English subtitles (closed captions) and transcript

He’d be driving down the road, and somebody would, like, cut him off or do something in traffic that got him mad, so he’d pull ahead of them, and then he’d pull in front of them, and he’d take the golf balls out of the glove compartment, and he’d, like, toss them out of his sunroof noomaa that they would, like, dent the car that had cut him off.


It’s ’cause, like, revenge I can control the situation. But with Jesus, there is no condemnation. But sometimes forgiving is remembering, and some lugbage are gonna keep returning to their vomit, and we don’t have to be there when they do. It’s like the cross is God’s way of saying: And this guy, he’s, like, still wearing his wedding ring, and he’s got kind noomma the hopeful, you know, “Hey, we’re gonna make it through this” kind of feeling.

So whatever was luggagf to you, whatever wrong was done to any of us, God saw it. Or have you ever had this happen? But maybe it was somebody that you really loved, or that you still love, and they left you. Because forgiving isn’t always forgetting, like in the healthiest of relationships, somebody wrongs the other person, and then they let it go, and they move on, and it’s no big deal.

It’s because revenge doesn’t work, does it? May you give to others what’s been noma to you.

We need to do it today. So when I forgive somebody, I am giving them what God has given to me. And my one friend starts telling this story.

Have you ever heard somebody say that, like, because of something that was done to them, they’ve been, like, “You know what? And he’s trying to kind of convince himself that it’s gonna be okay, but it doesn’t look like she is coming back. And so to forgive is to let it go, is to set them free, is to give up on the desire for revenge, but, ultimately, to really forgive somebody, I have to actually wish them well.


I can’t forgive them for what they did. In this Book of Romans, Chapter 12, the writer says: I was talking to this girl I know the other day, this friend of mine, and part way through our conversation, she’s like: Let God take care of it.

They’re big, and serious, luggzge deep wounds. This person wronged me, and I can’t turn it over to You, because I don’t know what You’re gonna do here.

It’s like when I forgive them, and I let them off the hook, I’m really letting myself off the hook. God created you to be free, like, free from bitterness, free from rage, and anger, and revenge. Free from feeling like you’re the judge of the world.

I think this is why freedom is so central to Jesus’ teachings. Maybe the real point of forgiveness isn’t other people. I mean, we’ve all wronged someone. Some people, we may not even be able to be around them. I mean, I don’t want what somebody else did to me to determine what my life onoma gonna be like, do you? Revenge is like part of our world, isn’t it?

And they can end up making the journey exhausting. I mean, maybe you have to do something. And after a while, these bags nooma heavy, don’t they? It’s something you do.
