And why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right? As you are going to court with your accuser, make your best effort to reach a settlement along the way. Otherwise, your accuser may bring you before the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison. I tell you, you won’t get out of there until you have paid the very last cent.” (Luke 12:57-59, CEB)
We should be open to admitting when we are wrong and working out a settlement with the people we have harmed. If we don’t, it could be worse than we think.
God gave us a bargain when God accepted us as we are. Should we not also look to offer grace when and where we can?
Go in grace, and help those who are in need.
Loving People. Loving God.
