“But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.”
I heard about a Sunday school teacher who asked her class about forgiveness. She said, “Kids, what does a person need to do to receive forgiveness from God?”
There was a short pause, and then a small boy spoke up and said, “You have to sin.”
We’ve all done that, haven’t we? If we’ve sinned, then we need forgiveness. The good news is that God promises in 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness” (NLT).
