Forgiveness is a gift from God. It’s a gift of love and mercy. It unlocks the chains that prevent us from healing and moving forward. Yet forgiveness is just that — a gift. It is not an entitlement. It’s ours either to accept or reject.
Thousands of years ago, in an era like ours that was similarly staggering under the weight of deceit, Jesus came to testify to the truth.
If we are complacent, defiant, or otherwise refuse to be taught, our path will lead us away from wisdom — and away from the Lord.
With God’s grace and guidance, I can become a better person — not perfect, but the person God wants me to be.

What we do understand of God is limited by our capacity to comprehend concepts that are not of this world.
There will be those who choose not to believe, but faith always begins with listening to the teaching of Christ.
