Who here is a tennis fanatic? This time of the year is dreadful for sleep; The Australian Open interferes in our life. But the other night something interesting happened.

Jelena Dokic publicly asked for forgiveness, said sorry for being a pain to the Australian public for her actions some years ago. And she thanked Tennis Australia for giving her another chance, even though she had publicly criticised them also some years ago.

Now the support she received probably indicates that many people have forgiven her. And Tennis Australia’s actions show that forgiveness does and can work, that it changes a person.

(From a sermon by Richard Schwedes, "God has authority of everything.....including your sins" 2/15/2009)
