In this video, Phyllis hones in on the importance of forgiveness and grace, describing what happens in our hearts and organizations when we fail to extend them. 

Matthew 6:14-15 (ESV)

14 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you,15 but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Describe at time when you struggled to show grace and forgiveness to someone who hurt you. How did it impact your relationship with that person, others, and God? How did the gospel change your perspective and soften your heart?

Phyllis said, “In an organization when there is un-forgiveness and everything is by the rules, creativity stops…the culture of trust cannot grow.” How have you experienced this in the marketplace? How does fear impact creativity and culture?

Phyllis said, “God’s plan for us is to accept and abide in his unconditional love and to give that love to others.” Lord, may this be our prayer.
