Pastor Ford will ask us to consider this question—Why is it that when someone does something against us, we look at their actions, but when we do something against them, we look at our intentions? And we say we didn’t intend to do it. Yet, we did it. So, whether we intended to or not, we hurt them and we have to deal with that, seek their forgiveness and try to reconcile things with them.
Pastor James Ford Jr. has been the senior pastor of Christ Bible Church of Chicago, located on the south side of Chicago, Ill., for over 35 years. He also serves as the president of Impact Ministries, an outreach ministry committed to strengthening families in the South Shore community of Chicago.
