    Confessing your sin is good for your health — any psychologist will tell you this. It’s good to clear your conscience and get things off your chest. Your body is not made to hold guilt inside you. When you do, it’s like shaking up a soda can with the top on. It will blow eventually.

    Forgiveness is free. But it’s not cheap. It cost Jesus Christ his life. And it’s also not easy. Forgiveness can only occur when the offended person volunteers to assume the debt and not to get even or seek revenge. That’s what Jesus did for us. That’s what he calls us to do for others.

    No characteristic describes God more fully than mercy. It’s the first trait that God uses to describe himself in Scripture. It’s also an important characteristic for any serious follower of Jesus to develop. If it’s such a core part of who God is, it’s got to be essential for us
