When I was in my early to mid teens I shoplifted things from stores Until not very long ago I also used software that I didn’t buy and I listened to music I didn’t pay for. I want to be forgiven for these sins. I really regret them and have repented.
The problem is that I have read about needing to make restitution and I don’t know how I can do that. Do I go to a store I shoplifted from and tell them I did it and give them money? Do I go to a software company and give them money? I guess another problem is that I don’t have very much money at all. I have some, but there’s also the issue of needing to save for college.
What do I need to do? Will I be forgiven if I don’t make restitution?
