Bad Choices and Guilt
Parents may feel guilty over their children's choices
Judgment lies on Cain, not his parents

Oughts and Debts
Two reasons why we may have inner tormentors
Failure to understand, receive and live out God's unconditional grace and forgiveness
Failure to give unconditional love, grace and forgiveness to others

Resentment test - is there someone you haven't let off the hook?
Responsibility test - is there some situation where you haven't accepted your personal responsibility?
Reminder and Reaction test - do you react negatively to others because they remind you of someone who hurt you in the past?
Scriptural Way to Deal with Debts
Are you living in a debt-free community of Christians? family? marriage?
We love, forgive and accept each other because we are loved, forgiven and accepted by God
Trust and accept God's forgiveness
