GETTING EVEN WITH MR. RODRIGUEZ. By Becky Kew Published at www.GospelHall.org. Mr.Rodriguez was a cranky man. He owned a grocery store and didn’t like kids coming into his store. If someone ever did anything wrong in his store he would never forgive them. He held grudges.

We naturally rebel against God. This is because of our sinful nature. Rom. 5:12
about King David
There was a man named Saul who was jealous of King David and wanted to have him killed.
There were times David had a chance to
get even but he chose not to.
David showed God’s love and kindness
of getting even.
Mrs. Perez said real love doesn’t keep
track of wrongs and rights.
With Mrs. Perez’s help, they were going to think of some ideas of how they could show Kindness to Mr. Rodriguez
Tyrone and the gang had another plan. As they walked out the door, Ricky could hear them talking about stealing eggs to throw at the store windows that night.
When Ricky and Marcello heard about the egging
they quickly went to Mr. R’s store and washed
his windows for him……..He was so angry and
didn’t have time to clean it up because he
was late for a meeting.
Ricky spoke up, “There was a man long ago who was accused of something he never did. His
enemies beat him up and
killed him. As He was dying
He never said a mean word
or tried to get even.”
“His name is Jesus”, Marcelo answered quietly.
Tyrone stopped laughing.
“DO YOU KNOW JESUS, TYRONE?”
“I have done too many bad things,” Tyrone whispered. “God could never forgive me.”
1 TIMOTHY 1:15
“I think God wants me to help you show kindness to Mr. Rodriguez.” he said.
Tyrone then apologized to Mr. Rodriguez for egging his store,
he told Mr. R how Jesus helped him to show kindness instead.
Mr. R soon became a good friend to the K2E Club.
