The topic of forgiveness is a subject of intense emotional weight for most of us, if not all of us. Whether it be sin and harm that we have done or sin and harm that has been done to us, it is core to our being that we know forgiveness and grant it as well. Perhaps the reason that we take it so seriously, and rightly so, is that the forgiveness we grant others is linked intimately in scripture with the forgiveness that God gives us.
About a week ago, I returned to the states after spending 30 days at an orphanage in Baja. I didn’t really know completely what I was getting myself into as I waited at the San Diego airport for some woman named Beth, to pick me up and take me to Mexico. I knew I would be at an orphanage, and I was praying that God would teach me and give me some sort of clarity about my future. What I got out of my experience at DOFO was so much more.
