“Or whatever it was they swore falsely about. They must make restitution in full, add a fifth of the value to it and give it all to the owner on the day they present their guilt offering.” (Lev 6:5)
We are not subject to the law. We have been released from its hold and are free. However, the wisdom and precepts still come from the heart of God.
While we receive forgiveness for what we do wrong and Jesus has paid the price for that, there are often consequences for our actions. We need to look beyond our forgiveness and endeavor to make restitution to those we have offended or harmed.
Our forgiveness is not in question or reliant on any restitution we may make, but taking the time to heal wounds and put right wrongs is worthwhile.
Quick Prayer: What do I need to put right, Lord? Amen.
