From our parsimonious selves…

Having been forgiven for everything, we must have hearts that are completely and entirely full of forgiveness for those who have wronged us. But the world is a messy place—what does this look like? We usually have a better understanding of forgiveness when receiving it, because we need the forgiveness we receive to be all-encompassing. We want to receive forgiveness dispensed from a fire hose, and we want to ladle it out with a teaspoon. But Jesus came to save us from our parsimonious selves.
