Importance of Forgiveness in Our Lives: What Jesus Taught His Disciples?*
Jesus once taught his disciples the importance of forgiveness while we live our lives as humans on earth.
Discipline must be maintained, justice must be administered, but in all these matters the wisdom of the human brotherhood should prevail.
Jesus invested legislative and judicial authority in the not in the Even this investment of authority in the group must not be exercised as personal authority. There is always danger that the verdict of an individual may be faulted by prejudice or distorted by passion. Group judgment is more likely to remove the dangers and eliminate the unfairness of personal bias.
Jesus sought always to minimize the elements of unfairness, retaliation, and vengeance from the acts of people while they conducted their lives on earth.
