Every Human Being has a Deep, Sometimes Hidden, Desire to be Forgiven.
Ernest Hemingway’s short story about the broken relationship between a Spanish father and his teenage son, Paco, highlights this desire.
Paco ran away from his home to Madrid, and his grieving father looked everywhere for him. In desperation, the father placed an ad in the Madrid newspaper that read,
“Dear Paco, meet me in front of the newspaper office tomorrow at noon. All is forgiven. I love you.”
The next morning, 800 hopeful men named Paco were standing in front of the newspaper office!
Someone needs your forgiveness right now, but even more, as you choose to forgive and surrender yourself to your loving heavenly Father, you’ll begin to experience the freedom that comes through forgiving.
