In yesterday’s paper a headline read: “MichaelVick is a dog killer and doesn't deserve forgiveness” and the
article ended with this statement: “I’m sorry, but there are some crimes that
warrant no forgiveness.”
I was shocked and saddened by
those two statements. Not because I think that Michael Vick was wrongly
convicted, but because I believe in forgiveness. Granted there are consequences
to any action and some actions warrant and deserve punishment. However I stand
today as one who has been forgiven
and because I am I have the obligation to forgive.
Do people choose not to forgive
because they have not experienced true forgiveness?
