Building Bridges

Think of the commandment, hate not your neighbor;/ of the Most High's covenant, and overlook faults. (Sir 28:7)

If the Lord rescues me from the snare of my faults, should I not extend the same hand of rescue to my neighbor? Resentment, grudges, retaliation do not help the one who offends me. They merely confirm the breach between us.

Bridge-building is costly, as the cross demonstrates, but the people stranded on both banks are all freed by the bridge.
