Boys (at least this boy) like to imagine scenarios which test God. “Can God make a rock that even God can’t lift it?” The constant message of the Bible is that God is all-powerful, that God is the one who acts, that God is in control. EXCEPT… According to the teaching of Jesus the one area in which we can control God is when we are unforgiving. “If you forgive others their transgressions, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your transgressions.” Being unwilling to forgive keeps us imprisoned. It gives the one who has offended continuing power over us. By forgiving we free ourselves, and free God to extend forgiveness to us.
