And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32 NKJV)

There was a vendor of fish and a vendor of meat that used to barter their goods to each other everyday. The fish vendor is illiterate and the meat vendor has some college education. They agreed to exchange each other’s commodities for one kilo every week. One day, the meat vendor weighed the fish and he found out that it was only 800 grams, short of 200 grams. He angrily confronted the fish vendor and told him, “How could you do this to me? I trusted you for so long, but I found out that you gave me less than a kilo of fish. How long have you fooled me?” The fish vendor answered, “My friend, you know that I never went to school, I don’t know how to use weighing scale, I just sell my goods by pile not by weight. So, every time I trade my fish with your meat, I just compare the weight of goods I got from you with my goods.” God faithfully forgave us from our trespasses; do not be deceived by not forgiving someone of their wrongdoings against us. Forgiving is the greatest and most beautiful attribute of love.
