‘Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great but judge your neighbor fairly. “‘Do not go about spreading slander among your people. ‘Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor’s life. I am the Lord. ‘Do not hate a fellow Israelite in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt. ‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.
Leviticus 19:15-18 NIV
Human beings have a good memory span, especially where they have been hurt or emotionally drained. All good things phase out eventually but not the bad ones. It’s hard to undo the mistakes. Sometimes these bad moments leave a lifetime scar, a deep one. Whereas some people don’t want you to forget. Some people can’t remember a good deed but can’t forget a bad one either. We must all forgive, love and live in harmony together.
