She asks tough questions and then offers possible solutionsdrawing a portrait of a truly forgiving person."One of Jesus' most mind-boggling declarations is that we who hope to follow him must first be willing to forgive the people who have hurt us. Not only does this injunction show up at the heart of the prayer he offers to his disciples ("Give us this day our daily bread…") but he restates it as a requirement for salvation: "If you forgive others their transgressionsyour heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you do not forgive othersneither will your Father forgive your transgressions." (Mt. 6:11-15)"He also tells us that if we wish to live in relationship with Godwe must first seek forgiveness from those we've hurt: "Thereforeif you bring your gift to the altarand there recall that your brother has anything against youleave your gift there at the altargo first and be reconciled with your brotherand then come and offer your gift." (Mt. 5:23-24). Our damaged relationships with other peopleespecially when we are responsible for that damagehave a direct effect on our friendship with God.
