God Forgives

Elul 21/August 27, 2013

It is fitting for a great God to forgive great sinners.                        (Vayikra Rabbah 5)

 For reflection: When we ask for forgiveness, too often we are asking to be excused. True forgiveness is not just being excused, but being understood. Each person has the potential to be a great sinner; think of someone to whom you might not be inclined to grant forgiveness.  Is there any way that you can begin to model great forgiveness in that situation? What would it take?
