Question #4 in the “Pressure of Retaliation” session asks, “What does patience offer that retaliation or revenge never will?” This video tells the story behind Matthew West’s song “Forgiveness.” Matthew explains that the song was written based on the story of a family’s forgiveness of a young man who killed their daughter in a drunk driving accident. Show the video to the men in your group, and ask Question #4 again, only this time focusing on what patience offers the person against whom you might otherwise retaliate.
