Brother Yun learns to be forgiving and merciful even to his persecutors.
Brother Yun relates some of his experiences and the lesson that forgiveness is not a burden, it is an offer. Loving one's enemies and doing good to them starts with forgiveness.

Brother Yun suffered imprisonment because of sin and disobedience, but he confessed and found forgiveness.
