One of the most special times in our church service is when members share about what God has been teaching them or doing through them the past week. Gabor (Hugi’s husband) spoke about the power of God’s word. He shared how he applied Jesus’ teaching found in Matthew 5:38-40:

“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’  But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.  And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well.”

Apparently, just before Christmas someone robbed Hugi and Gábor’s garage. Later Gábor found out who the perpetrator was, and they lived in the same apartment complex. On Sunday before Christmas, our church received donations of gifts for members to distribute to those in need. Gábor came to Miki and requested a gift. It turns out he wanted to give the gift to the family that stole from him. Hugi and Gábor bought fresh fruit, and with the gift delivered the package. Gábor said that the family didn’t know what to do with such kindness. It was simply unbelievable and completely unexpected. Praise God for members applying His teaching and blessing others through their obedience to Jesus.
