Lessons From Monk

There's a great sequence in this one episode of the show Monk.

Monk, a former detective (who happens to be extremely OCD), has been hunting for his wife's murderer. After many years, he finally finds the man (Tennyson) who made the car bomb that killed his wife Trudy.

Tennyson, who is dying of some disease (I forget), is in a hospital bed. He asks Monk for forgiveness.

Monk turns off Tennyson's morphine drip and says, "This is me, turning off your morphine." After a few agonizing seconds, he turns it back on and says, "This is Trudy, the woman you killed, turning it back on."

What a great analogy for God's forgiveness.
