Forgiveness and Reconciliation


Proverbs 18:19

19 A brother offended is more unyielding than a strong city,
and quarreling is like the bars of a castle.

Proverbs 10:12

12 Hatred stirs up strife,
but love covers all offenses.

Proverbs 25:7-10

for it is better to be told, “Come up here,”
than to be put lower in the presence of a noble.

What your eyes have seen
do not hastily bring into court,
for what will you do in the end,
when your neighbor puts you to shame?
Argue your case with your neighbor himself,
and do not reveal another's secret,
10 lest he who hears you bring shame upon you,
and your ill repute have no end.

Proverbs 25:21-22

21 If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat,
and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,
22 for you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the Lord will reward you.
