Forgiving As We Have Been Forgiven

This past week I put to memory Colossians 3:12-13: "Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive."

This morning I came across a news article posted on the CNN website with the headline: "Woman opens heart to man who slaughtered her family." It's about Iphigenia Mukantabana, a Christian from Rawanda, who is following Jesus in forgiving Jean-Bosco Bizimana, who hacked and clubbed to death her husband and five of her children. Here is the link.
