Forgiveness Teaching Brings Healing

Josh, from one of the local high schools in Australia, received teaching from our youth ministry on forgiveness which changed how he viewed his relationships…

it was clear that Josh was being bullied…

During a seminar on peer violence, it was clear to Josh that he was being bullied. While he was laying down after being punched, another student spit on him and the saliva ended up in his mouth. He told the administration, “I am either going to hurt myself or that bully”. We shared about the power of forgiveness and he decided to forgive the bully. When the other boy would not be suspended, Josh immediately said “Do not suspend him because I have forgiven him”. The administration was astonished. Seeing Josh go to the bully and tell him his decision, impacted everyone and the bully made amends.
