At our weekly Bible study... this year we started witrh Jesus healing the 10 lepers and only one came back to thank Him.
The discussion was that lepers in Jesus' time, were throw away people, as leprosy was so bad you just had to leave everything behind, and go else where, no one wanted to "know" you.
Now we did discuss other things besides what I want to mention here and now,.but.....
The main thing the leader brough out of the lesson was that we should bring our past messes to the front and use it as a message to others.
I do not always agree with that,.
My point being that I don't agree with the fact that we have to bring past mistakes and awful times
back to our present and go over it, all over again.
What's wrong with quietly forgetting the past, after having made restitution with God, and dwelling on it?
Not that I have not used things from the past to help others....I have....but
well.....I did not agree with her.....what do you think?
Was I wrong?
