A new proverb relating to the idea of goodness was posted to the Mishlei section on Wednesday 3/29. A good person is inclined to forgive those who have offended him. The offenders may deserve punishment for the harm they have done, but the good person doesn’t want to be the cause of another’s pain. Even if the punishment is decreed in Heaven, the good person hopes the offenders will see the error of their ways so that retribution is not carried out on his account.
