Monty Williams: Grace & Forgiveness at Funeral

I loved this amazing message from a husband who just lost his wife. Some powerful, powerful words spoken right from the heart. Totally worth the watch. If you don’t know the story, you can read some of it here:

In the most moving part of his speech, Williams asked the audience to pray for the family of Susannah Donaldson, the driver who hit Ingrid while speeding 92 MPH in a 45 zone, and who also died.

Everybody is praying for me and my family, and that is right, but let us not forget that there were two people in this situation, and that family needs prayer as well. And we have no ill will toward that family. In my house, we have a sign that says ‘As for me and my house, we will serve the lord.’ We cannot serve the lord if we don’t have a heart of forgiveness. That family didn’t wake up wanting to hurt my wife. Life is hard. Life is very hard. And that was tough. But we hold no ill will towards the Donaldson family. And we, as a group, brothers united in unity, should be praying for that family, because they grieve as well. (Deadspin)
