Who is forgiveness for? Most often the answer to that question is “the people we like or love.” That’s fair, but it’s also predictable. It’s going along with how humanity has done things for its entire history. Forgiving our enemies? Forgiving people that are different than us? What would happen if that became the way people thought and operated? Everything would change. People would change. But for that to happen, forgiveness has to go beyond the people just like us...it’s way more difficult than that.
