The Lord’s Love Can Repair Relationship - Suki Tan
I have believed in the Lord Jesus Christ for 18 years. Before I believed in the Lord Jesus, I was easily jealous and had never said sorry to others. Since childhood, I had been always jealous of my older sister. I always thought that our parents had given her all the best things, and she had received more love than I did. As a result, I had done a lot of things which my parents and other family members didn’t like to attract their attentions. I often quarreled over minor issues with my older sister. Sometimes we would not talk to each other over a few months even to half year. Whether I was right or wrong, I would never apologize to her because I thought I would lose my superiority if I said sorry. However, such lifestyle made me unhappy, so I would like to change, not to envy, and to repair the relationship with my older sister. But we had argued for many years. I thought our relationship would not be changed until I met the Lord Jesus. I was touched by His love which showed through the cross: He loved and forgave those who hated Him, and He even crucified for those who betrayed Him and beat Him.
Once I fought with my older sister for the TV show, and then we had not talked to one another for a day. After that, I remembered from the bible that the disciple Peter asked Jesus, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.” (Matthew 18: 21-22) The love of the Lord and the lesson from the bible motivated me to apologize to my older sister. Therefore, I summoned courage to write a letter to my older sister to express my willingness to repair the relationship with her at that day. Since then, I am no longer jealous, and we rarely quarrel. Even if we quarrel sometimes, I will bravely apologize to her. Then we will reconcile very soon. Now, I often give thanks for having my older sister, and I cherish her. Thanks to the Lord for all the help.
