Time To Let Go…

Tony Blair will be testifying at the Iraq Inquiry shortly. The Daily Telegraph has an article on how the families of some of the families of soldiers who have died wanted a 15 minute closed door session with Blair.

I doubt that will happen.

And the families need to let it go. Regardless of how they feel about Blair – that he was a lair, a war-mongerer – a murderer, the families need to get on with life. The truth will come out – scripture tells us that. Spending their life seeking justice and fighting on a human level to avenge the death of their loved one as they fought in the army will leave them exhausted. They need to give it to God – trust in his justice and sovereignty and move on in their lives. They need to let  go of Blair and their anger of him;

Do not avenge yourselves, dear friends, but give place to God’s wrath, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.  Rather, if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in doing this you will be heaping burning coals on his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Romans 12:19-21
