Valley News and Views As Jesus was showing the Disciples how and what they ought to pray He said they should include words along this line: "And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors" (Matthew 6:12). Luke's account reads: "And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive everyone that is indebted to us" (11:4). Both Matthew's and Luke's account has the petitioner basing his request to be forgiven on his own proven willingness and readiness to forgive people who have offended, wronged, and hurt him. In another place when Jesus is talking about forgiveness He says it must come "from the heart". In Matthew 6 Jesus returns to the matter of forgiving and amplifies its importance, saying, "For if we forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."

You don't know the pain he put me and my family through. I will never forgive him. God will understand." Do you remember one of the last sentences Jesus uttered as He hung on the Cross, after having been unfairly hated, unjustly tried, beaten, abused, and crucified? "Father, forgive them...."

Ace made mention of my Sisyphean Labors. I could tell by his writing he was very articulate. It was a little intimidating, especially since a quick check on him showed him to be a writer, poet, musician and teacher. And So, the word Sisyphean set off all sorts of auto thoughts and I immediately came to the conclusion the he was a master of insult and had found a way to call me a "sissy" and "peon", using just one big word. Why he'd call me that never crossed my mind. I just felt it was true. My auto thoughts told me so.
