Discussion

Discussion 1- 7.2

At different times of the year we hear about helping others.  That might be a family member, a non-profit group, our alma mater, or some other organization. 

How often do we think of it within our workplaces?  I’m not thinking specifically of the organization, though it might apply in some cases.  But within our work groups, our co-workers, and perhaps even employees that report to us, are we stingy?  With our praise, our words, our affirmations, or perhaps even our resources?

In the Bible, Proverbs 11:24 (https://my.bible.com/bible/97/PRO.11.24) states: “The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller.”

How are you generous?  How are you stingy?

Let’s not just think about money, but all aspects of our lives.

Discussion 2:

  • What will happen in terms of job losses and career skills as some of the emerging technologies become intelligent?

Discussion 3:

I came across this explanation of Forgiveness from a Christian perspective and thought it worthwhile to share this week.  It is from https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/what-is-forgiveness/:

The Bible’s answer

Forgiveness is the act of pardoning an offender. In the Bible, the Greek word translated “forgiveness” literally means “to let go,” as when a person does not demand payment for a debt. Jesus used this comparison when he taught his followers to pray: “Forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is in debt to us.” (Luke 11:4) Likewise, in his parable of the unmerciful slave, Jesus equated forgiveness with canceling a debt.—Matthew 18:23-35.

We forgive others when we let go of resentment and give up any claim to be compensated for the hurt or loss we have suffered. The Bible teaches that unselfish love is the basis for true forgiveness, since love “does not keep account of the injury.”—1 Corinthians 13:4, 5.

What forgiveness does not mean

  • Condoning the offense. The Bible actually condemns those who claim that bad actions are harmless or acceptable.—Isaiah 5:20.
  • Pretending that the offense never happened. God forgave King David of serious sins, but he did not shield David from the consequences of his actions. God even had David’s sins recorded so that they are remembered today.—2 Samuel 12:9-13.
  • “Forgiving” every perceived slight. Sometimes, rather than pardoning a so-called offender, we may need to admit that we had no valid cause for being offended in the first place. The Bible says: “Do not be quick to take offense, for the taking of offense is the mark of a fool.”—Ecclesiastes 7:9, footnote.

For your reflection, consider the list above of what forgiveness is and what forgiveness does not mean.  Which of these are you surprised to read about?  Which ones do you agree with?
