Reading the passage and commentary below brought to my realization that it was written about a time which is now gone. A time before Lucifer took control of the sky with his evil technologies.
Just about all of us have been hurt at one point or another by someone else. It’s easy to fall into bitterness and resentment that could last the rest of our lives. But as difficult as it is to forgive and move forward it must take place in our hearts. Alexander Pope said “To err is human but to forgive is divine. What seems impossible in the act of forgiveness does come from the dependence and obedience to God almighty because he is the author of forgiveness.
“Jesus said to them, ‘Watch out that no one deceives you.’”Mark 13:5
