Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers until he should pay back the whole debt. So will my heavenly Father do to you, unless each of you forgives your brother from your heart.” Mt_18:21-35
Unjustly persecuted? Hurt by evil? Abused, misused, tormented? Yes, beloved it hurts. But it doesn’t give us excuse to do the same to others. God is filled with mercy and He calls us to be the same. And when we become those evils in the world that we dislike ourselves, then, knowing better we have no excuse but to be reprimanded until we pay back the last penny! Pray for strength, beloved, because none of this is easy. But it IS a part of life! The Holy Spirit will give us that strength and Jesus gave us the model to follow!
