The Forgiveness of a Mistreated Slave

This true story will give you great encouragement to forgive those who have hurt you. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

Even though slavery wasn’t legal in the early 1900’s, Robert Sadler and two of his sisters were sold to a white farmer in Anderson, SC. 

Robert was mistreated and one of his sisters was tortured and killed by this evil farmer.

This cruelty is hard to imagine, but not as hard as the rest of Robert's story.

After Robert gained his freedom, he gave his life fully to Christ and forgave the evil family who had mistreated him and his sisters. 

Then he and his sister did something else incredible--they took their elderly father into their home and cared for him until he died.

Why is this so incredible? Because their father was the one who had sold them into slavery.

Romans 12:14 says “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.”

If you are struggling to forgive someone today, compare your situation to Robert's and be encouraged that you can do all things through Christ (Philippians 4:13).




I strongly recommend The Emancipation of Robert Sadler which was out of print for years but has recently been republished. I get no compensation for this recommendation.
