Pull in the Anchor

Have you done someone wrong?

Have you been offensive?

Have your actions caused hurt?

To do nothing is not only in direct disobedience to Jesus' teaching, it also complicates your life. It adds heavier mental weights than you are capable of carrying.

It is like dropping an anchor and then cranking up your boat's engine and putting it in gear. The anchor keeps catching and snagging on the bottom, making for a terribly uncomfortable ride across the water.

How simple the solution! Just pull in the anchor.

Let me give you a simple tip: We cannot be right with God until we are right with others.

Embrace Forgiveness

There are various kinds of forgiveness, some being much harder than others. But all are essential if we want to both release the past and maintain a close, unhindered walk with our Lord.
