RESTITUTION

“Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance” (Matt. 3:8)

If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity… none of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him” (Ezek. 33:15,16).

“And Zaccheus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold” (Luke 19:8).

“There is no evidence of genuine repentance unless it works reformation. If he restores the pledge, give again that he had robbed, confess his sins, and love God and his fellow men, the sinner may be sure that he has passed- from death unto life.“-Steps to Christ, p.59:1.

“Show your repentance for past wrongs by redeeming the time. Where you have wronged anyone, make restitution as it comes to your mirid.”– 3T 549, 550.

“The Lord has opened before you your wrong toward His children–your want of mercy and love, your determination to control minds and make them see things just as you see them. And when light came-to you, what course did you take? Did you merely admit that you were wrong, or did you heartily confess your error and humble your proud hearts before God? Did you cast aside your ways and accept God’s teachings? Did you go to the very ones you had bruised and wounded, and say: I have been wrong; I have sinned against you. Forgive me.
