On August 20, 2006, Darrin Ray’s life was changed forever. He was in the car with his daughter on their way to church when they were struck by a drunk driver. Part of his leg as eventually amputated.

During a court hearing, Ray told the judge that he wanted to forgive the driver of the $2.5 million debt that was directly owed to his family, Christian Headlines reported.

“The judge looked at me and said, ‘Why do you want to forgive this man that debt?’” he said. “And I looked at that judge, and I told him, ‘Because I have a Savior that forgave me. He paid my debts that I could never repay.’”

“When I forgave that man, I was instantly freed from bitterness and anger,” Ray continued. “When you truly think about how much Christ has forgiven you, it helps you to forgive others who have wronged you. Now, I’m able to walk in freedom and wholeness.”
