Forgiving ODM and Kalenjin Warriors But Not forgeting their Evil

This morning I woke up and realized how much I hate ODM and now the tribes associated with it .As I took a shower the battle in my mind went one way then the other .In the end I said a silent prayer concluding that I should and must hate Evil. I also realized that We should not use broad swipes to classify people . Many in Kenya have died while many have gloated over those deaths ,some even justifying the killing of innocent Kikuyu Men Women and Children .How sad and how evil .Then as I sat down for breakfast my daily morning devotional had the following reading from Matthew 18:23-35

23"Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. 24As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. 25Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt.
26"The servant fell on his knees before him. 'Be patient with me,' he begged, 'and I will pay back everything.' 27The servant's master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.
28"But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii.He grabbed him and began to choke him. 'Pay back what you owe me!' he demanded. 29"His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, 'Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.' 30"But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. 31When the other servants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed and went and told their master everything that had happened.
32"Then the master called the servant in. 'You wicked servant,' he said, 'I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. 33Shouldn't you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?' 34In anger his master turned him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed. 35"This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart."
Matthew 18:23-35 (New International Version)

His love has no limit, His grace has no measure,His power has no boundary known unto men;For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,He giveth and giveth and giveth again.
Our sin is great—God’s grace is greater.

We should Forgive this Evil People .But they also need to realize How Evil they are
