Passage: Matthew 7:1-5

It seems so normal in our world to blame others. This often happens in conflict situations. Jesus calls us to search our own actions, words, thoughts, and hearts to see if there is a 'log in our own eye'. The Seven A's of Apologising/Confessing can help us work through conflict in a healthy way.

We’re all made differently. Our personalities and make up are different. How do you respond to conflict? Sometimes our responses are very different.

Duration: 13 mins 21 secs
Sometimes it seems that its one step forward and two steps back during this COVID-19 time of restriction. We humans know what it is to carry heavy burdens of many varieties. The apostle Paul knew the impossible burden of sin and proclaimed, “What a wretched person I am!” To people who carry burdens and who are weary comes Jesus, with an invitation to come to him to find rest and to learn from him. Jesus comes to you and me, bringing this same invitation. When we are carrying a heavy load, he says “Lean on me”.
