It is reported that when Leonardo da Vinci was painting “The Last Supper”, he became angry with a man and lashed out at him. He even threatened the man. Then he went back to his workplace and tried to paint the face of Jesus. He couldn’t do it because there was too much ill will stirring inside of him. The lack of peace finally forced him to put down his brushes, go find the man and ask for his forgiveness. Only then did he have the inner calm he needed to paint the face of his Master.
“And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”—Matthew 6:12.
