The world desperately needs reconciliation. We are surrounded by groups of people in strife with each other, fueled by hatred and division. However, because of what Jesus Christ did, we no longer have to be divided. Jesus shed His blood to bring equality for everyone and make it possible for us to be reconciled with one another. In the Old Testament, when Jacob wronged his brother Esau and their relationship was
broken, Jacob later had a change of heart and humbly admitted his fault. However, reconciliation could never have taken place if Esau had not forgiven his brother. When we are willing to admit our wrongdoings, and also forgive others and set aside our differences and past hurts, we find healing in our relationships.
