A Few Thoughts about Reconciliation. Feedback Please!

I am currently reading Exclusion and Embrace by Mirslov Volf and came across this powerful thought about reconciliation:

“The work of reconciliation should proceed under the assumption that, though the behavior of a person may be judged as deplorable, even demonic, no one should ever be excluded from the will to embrace, because, at the deepest level, the relationship to others does not rest on their moral performance and therefore cannot be undone by the lack of it.”

Powerful right! But how does this work out in practice? How do we do this without being taken advantage of? How can we embrace those who have hurt us deeply, without risking the same injury and disappointment again?

Let me know your thoughts on this…
