First Be Reconciled

"So then, if you are bringing your offering to the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar, go and be reconciled with your brother first, and then come back and present your offering."  This quote is from Matthew 5:20-26, a passage in which Jesus warns us how anger disrupts our relationship with God.  As I meditated on it this morning, I thought of relatives and friends with whom I am not at peace and also of public figures whom I find it hard to love.  Is my offering at the altar a true surrender of my heart?
