Unopened Letters

Elizabeth Barrett’s father disapproved of her marriage to Robert browning so strongly that he never forgave her. She wrote letters to her father seeking reconciliation, but he returned them unopened. Had he opened them, and read the beautiful language she used, he may have forgiven her. The Bible is God’s letter to give us reconciliation, yet many people never read it.
