If you forgive

     Jesus warns:  If you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.
     At a first glance it sounds as “a tooth for a tooth an eye for an eye.”  However, on reflection, pondering on this text more carefully, we discover that it is very logical in the order of love.  If you don’t forgive people, if you nurture the hatred and need for revenge, you cut yourself from God who is Love.
