Psalm 103:11-13

For as the heavens are high above the earth,
So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
As a father pities his children,
So the Lord pities those who fear Him.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

A reader named Katie asked about the difference between repentance and forgiveness: to repent means to be sorry for some wrong doing; to forgive means to pardon for some wrong doing.

The first step after being snared by temptation is to be truly sorry; the next step is ask God to forgive you and, when applicable and if possible, to ask whomever was wronged to forgive you as well.

Then, as Jesus said to the woman who was caught in adultery, we are to "Go and sin no more."

God Bless You!

Q. In what way was King Jehoash disobedient in the sight of the Lord?

Answer below.



"You can't escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today."

-Abraham Lincoln


One father to another: "Things sure were a lot different when we were boys. My son has a color TV, a computer, a VCR, a stereo, a radio, and a telephone in his room. When I want to punish him, I have to send him to my room!"



Q. In what way was King Jehoash disobedient in the sight of the Lord?

A. by not removing the high places

Jehoash did what was right in the sight of the Lord all the days in which Jehoiada the priest instructed him. But the high places were not taken away; the people still sacrificed and burned incense on the high places.

2 Kings 12:2-3

The high places were either natural or man-made hills upon which the people built shrines for sacrifices to false gods. Even when the high place was devoted to Jehovah, they were still being disobedient as God had told them to build the temple and do sacrifices there.
