She pauses, then continues. “My husband and son were my only family, I want secondly, therefore, for Mr van der Broek to become my son. I would like for him to come twice a month to the ghetto and spend a day with me so that I can pour out on him whatever love I still have remaining in me. Now the woman stands in the courtroom and listens to the confessions offered by Mr van der Broek. A member of the South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission turns to her and asks, “SO what do you want? How should justice be done to this man who has so brutally destroyed your family?” In light of our new beginning, God commands that in return, we forgive others and extend grace as we have been shown grace. It can be one of the hardest things we face in life! The pain and hurt others cause us is real and great. But, the pain of living with bitterness and unforgiveness can poison your soul and destroy you. When we forgive others, we are not saying what they did was OK, but we are releasing them to God and letting go of it's hold on us. Forgiveness does not forget, but it does set free from bitterness and grudges. Take time today to thank Jesus for dying for you. Jesus paid a very high price for our forgiveness. Forgiveness is not easy, but Jesus made it possible. Verse 11 portrays the priest, who stood daily “offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.” You can feel a sense of futility in these words! But verse 12 contrasts the “one sacrifice for sins for all time” that Jesus offered, after which He “sat down at the right hand of God.” The standing of the priests indicates unfinished work that is never done (there were no chairs in the sanctuary). The sitting of Jesus indicates that His work of sacrifice is finished, and that He has been exalted to the place of supreme honor.

In our own stories we may never have to forgive someone who has murdered a family member, but there will be many other incidents that occur that cause us hurt and leave us with the choice of utterly forgiving someone. And yet despite this call to forgive and the benefits of forgiving, it is not easy because it is rarely instantaneous. It requires us on a daily basis, choosing not to seek revenge or to punish those who have wronged us and that hurts. After all, every parent wants their children to get along with one another. No parent likes it when one child comes and squeals on the other and demands that they be punished. The poor parent is put on the spot. What gladdens the heart of every parent is when there is love and forgiveness. That is what we do for God when we ask that He bless and not curse. He told us to pray for our enemies, "that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteousness" (Matt. 5:45). DUTY. The first level is strictly based on obedience; you are doing it because you feel you have to. Someone ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down,” he said.I often keep books for future reference. If I don't keep the whole book I like to at least copy down quotes. The only bit I found worth keeping in the whole book turned out to be borrowed from another source. Actually, Kendall cited a book that in turn cited another source, and then he misspelled the name of the original source. I'd like to correct his error and recommend the study by Michele (spelled with one 'l', not Michelle) Killlough Nelson which can be found at http://docs.lib.purdue.edu/dissertati.... These are the Lord’s appointed festivals, the sacred assemblies you are to proclaim at their appointed times: 5 The Lord’s Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month. 6 On the fifteenth day of that month the Lord’s Festival of Unleavened Bread begins; for seven days you must eat bread made without yeast. 7 On the first day hold a sacred assembly and do not do any of your ordinary work. 8 For seven days present a food offering to the Lord. And on the seventh day hold a sacred assembly and do not do any of your ordinary work.’” Offering the Firstfruits

We can choose to be like the servant in the story who accepts the wiping of his debt but whose attitude is not changed as he reacts without mercy towards another DEBT. You have reached the second level when you are so conscious of what you have been forgiven of that you cannot help but pray for your enemy. You don't want God to "spill the beans" on you, so you pray that your enemy too will be spared. The Lord said to Moses, 34 “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the fifteenth day of the seventh month the Lord’s Festival of Tabernacles begins, and it lasts for seven days. 35 The first day is a sacred assembly; do not do any of your ordinary work. 36 For seven days present food offerings to the Lord, and on the eighth day hold a sacred assembly and present a food offering to the Lord. It is the closing special assembly; do not do any of your ordinary work.

Forgiveness: Letting go of grudges and bitterness

Now the son of an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father went out among the Israelites, and a fight broke out in the camp between him and an Israelite. 11 The son of the Israelite woman used the Name blasphemously with a curse; so they brought him to Moses. (His mother’s name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri the Danite.) 12 They put him in custody until the will of the Lord should be made clear to them.

Total Forgiveness by R.T. Kendall - I hated this book. I only read it was because I told a friend I would. My friend said the book had been helpful to him many years ago. I hope he's matured enough to change his mind about the book if he re-read it now. As it is he's lost credibility with me regarding forgiveness and any other topic. Forgiveness is not a reason to sin – it is an incentive not to sin. We want to stay on God’s paths. He promises that he will guide you: ‘I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you’ (v.8). The apostle Paul quotes this psalm as evidence that through the death of Jesus for you, God credits you with righteousness by faith and that forgiveness is not something that you can earn by good works (see Romans 4:6-8). Through the cross, God restores you to a right relationship with him. Therefore, you can pray to him (Psalm 32:6a). He becomes your ‘hiding-place’ (v.7a). He protects you from trouble (v.7b). He guides you (v.8) and his ‘unfailing love surrounds’ you (v.10). revival in my church. I had to choose which meant more to megetting even with someone who had hurt one of my children or

Anyone who takes the life of a human being is to be put to death. 18 Anyone who takes the life of someone’s animal must make restitution —life for life. 19 Anyone who injures their neighbour is to be injured in the same manner: 20 fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. The one who has inflicted the injury must suffer the same injury. 21 Whoever kills an animal must make restitution, but whoever kills a human being is to be put to death. 22 You are to have the same law for the foreigner and the native-born. I am the Lord your God.’”
