A Pound of Flesh.
Sometimes some people will commit you to their judgement and make you pay.
They want their pound of flesh.
And this can happen in the Church.
If you are politically incompatible or are perceived to have transgressed some people will want to make you pay.
But, as in the play, they must show mercy.
The letter of the law should not be applied.
Whole generations have been punished for their perceived transgressions.
And projected guilt can manufacture a political victory.
So show mercy, even to your enemies.
