I don’t forgive you! I would do it all again!
What do you do when someone has hurt you and offended you and they refuse to take responsibility for what they have done? Imagine what it must have been like for Paul, who once supported throwing Christians in prison, if someone came to him and said, “You had my dad thrown in prison for our faith! He became sick and died!” If that were you seeing Paul for the first time, how would you be tempted to respond? Most would be tempted with revenge! Most would want the person to pay for his or her offense or crime. Justice is important, but justice or revenge will not replace our loss.
