[24] leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God.   (Mt 5:24 NLTse)

… The world seeks reconciliation on limited terms. Christians are to be reconciled, whatever it takes.  …

… Jesus did not include an exception clause for our reconciliation. If the person is an enemy, Jesus said to love him (Mt 5:44). If he persecutes you, you are to pray for him (v. 44). If she publicly humiliates you, you are not to retaliate (v. 39). If someone takes advantage of you, you are to give even more than he asks (v. 41). …

… Men spat upon Jesus and nailed Him to a cross. His response was our model: “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do” (Lk 23:34).  …

God’s Word does not say “Try to be reconciled,” but “Be reconciled.” …

[39] But I say, do not resist an evil person! If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also.  [40] If you are sued in court and your shirt is taken from you, give your coat, too.  [41] If a soldier demands that you carry his gear for a mile, carry it two miles. [42] Give to those who ask, and don’t turn away from those who want to borrow.  Teaching about Love for Enemies  [43] “You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy.  [44] But I say, love your enemies!  Pray for those who persecute you!  (Mt 5:39-44 NLTse)

[34] Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.” And the soldiers gambled for his clothes by throwing dice.  (Lk 23:34 NLTse)
