A dispised relative is dying of cancer

Herbert's nickname in the family is Snake-in-the-grass. He stole and took advantage of everybody, including his relatives. One time, in his youth, he took some money from a relative on the pretext of going into a store to get an item for her--and he escaped through the back with the money, leaving her in the car with neither the money nor the needed item.

He is dying of cancer. It invaded his larynx, and he cannot talk.

He was so hated by his family, that his aunt (Ruby's mother) specified that he was not to be allowed to attend her funeral.


I have counseled Ruby that we must visit him. The Lord did better for us sinners than we deserved. To follow Him, we must do treat others better than they deserve.

Good for you, Scholar.:)

We are commanded to Love, there is nothing about liking. I'm with you, Scholar, carrying hate and bitterness does no harm to the one who is despised, but it sure hurts you.

One would expect no less.


What have you done about the sexual abuse case?

Matthew 18:6 and Isaiah 1:17and Luke 17:2 might help.
