Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

"All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." So where is our hope? It is in the mercy and forgiveness of our Heavenly Father.

Jesus, in teaching the apostles to pray, told them to forgive others as they hope and expect God to forgive them. That means forgiving fully without conditions or without holding grudges.

If you forgive someone but can't "let it go", then you haven't truly forgiven them. The best way is to forgive and forget, not the lesson, but the deed. Only then can you truly experience the joy and peace of "rest in the Lord"!

God Bless You!

-TODAY'S NOT SO TRIVIAL TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. Which did Jesus say was easier, to forgive sins or
to heal?

Answer below.

********************

--DAILY BIBLE VERSE:

"And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses."

Mark 11:25-26

What Jesus is saying here is that with what measure we forgive others, that is how God will forgive us.

--TODAY'S BIT OF WISDOM/REFLECTION:

"I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I cannot forgive."

- Henry Ward Beecher

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. Which did Jesus say was easier, to forgive sins or to heal?

A. to heal


Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you."

And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, "This Man blasphemes!" But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, "Why do you think evil in your hearts? For which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, 'Arise and walk'?

But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins" -then He said to the paralytic, "Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house." And he arose and departed to his house.

Matthew 9:2-7

This shows us what an incredible gift we give to someone, as well as to ourselves, when we truly forgive.
