വീട് പണിയുന്നവർ തള്ളിക്കളഞ്ഞ കല്ല്

Redeeming Love!

Love is forgiving! Forgiving the ones who betrayed, Forgiving the jealous who accused Jealousy with purposeful pointing fingers Abandoning in a cold, dark dungeon. Forgiving stone hearts that traded; Traded as a slave to foreign merchants, His worth to twenty silver coins reduced! Forgiving unrepentant brothers that lied Lying to
