A few years ago James Fantroy was convicted of stealing $20,000 worth of government grants while serving on the Dallas City Council. However, because he had cancer and was confined to a wheelchair, the judge took pity on him and gave him the option of either serving a prison sentence or publicly apologizing for his actions. Fantroy chose to go to jail rather than apologize. Like so many of us, he preferred to suffer all sorts of unpleasant consequences rather than swallow his pride and say sorry. But we never find peace without doing it, including peace with God.
Jesus said: ‘If you enter your place of worship and… suddenly remember a grudge a friend has against you… leave immediately, go to this friend and make things right. Then … come back and work things out with God.’
