By @bow_tie_bros_comics We should never leave our spiritual Father and refuse to speak with him because of the actions of our imperfect spiritual brothers and sisters. Blaming God for the actions of others is like blaming your parents because your sibling broke your toy. When a sibling does something to hurt us, as a kid, our childish viewpoint of justice may desire a punishment far more extreme then what the parents deem actually necessary. Maybe we have been hurt by someone in the congregation and we hope that they face some form of extreme punishment when in reality Jehovah sees everything and knows what the correct discipline should be and when it should happen, if at all. We need to trust that no matter what has been done to us, that Jehovah sees and will handle matters in his own perfect way just as any good parent would. It's also important that we remember that we are all imperfect and at some point will hurt the feelings of one another. We may even inadvertently cause some to stumble. That's why we should always be ready to forgive others just as we would like to be forgiven for our errors. Also notice how the little one is still holding on to the source of the problem. Sometimes we need to just let it go and move on or give it to our father who can "sew up" what has been torn.
