The Bishop

The other day I was listening to some songs from Les Miserables and I remembered the bishop, whose stuff got stolen by the… early protagonist. When the protagonist got brought back by a police officer, the bishop, instead of saying that the protagonist was the thief, said that he had given whatever the protagonist had stolen. Even more amazing, he offered more things to the protagonist.

This made me think of what Jesus said, “…If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.” (Matthew 5:39)

It seems kinda hard to do. Isn’t it? Most of us would think nothing of sending a thief to jail for stealing our stuff. And to give more if the thief was caught…
