Retribution is something given or demanded in repayment, especially punishment.
The anger that causes us to seek retribution can so quickly become a cancer of bitterness.
If we dispense or exact punishment from someone for doing something we consider wrong, are we not as diseased as we assume them to be?
The topic Retribution was brought to the LBC table this week at the suggestion of Maria/Gaelikaa, for our consideration. I look forward to reading what she has to say on the subject!
