Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
Jesus said that we are not to hesitate to admit guilt. If we are wrong, we are to be quick to admit it and make things right. If we remain unrepentant, our sin will eventually catch up with us and we will not only have to make full restitution but suffer additional penalties as well.
