FamilyLife Blended®with Ron L. Deal
An Act of Courage Friday, April 23, 2021
One decision can make all the difference. Jemma's husband left her and their daughter and married a woman and was expecting a child. Jemma’s pain and bitterness was overwhelming so she planned to take her daughter away from her father. But Jemma’s mother told her to stop and think and respond in grace. She stayed and she’s so glad she did. Today, her daughter and half-sister are very close and Jemma has a healthy co-parenting relationship with the other home that blesses both kids. Bitterness doesn’t lead us toward love. Grace does.
