When an Israelite came to the temple to present a sacrifice, he was to make sure that his brother or a fellow Israelite did not have a valid reason for a complaint against him. Jesus urged the one remembering that his brother could fault him to leave the temple, mend the strained relationship, and then return to present his gift or sacrifice. (Matthew 5:23, 24)
