Forgive Like God

I Forgive You on stump-230

Scripture

Numbers 14:19-23 (MSG)

"Please forgive the wrongdoing of this people out of the extravagance of your loyal love just as all along, from the time they left Egypt, you have been forgiving this people."

Consider

In all the years since the Israelites were freed from bondage in Egypt, they seem to have learned nothing about God's grace and power. Now on the brink of entering the Promised Land, they grumble about their hardships and threaten to abandon the quest and return to slavery in Egypt.

Fudging the Facts

Ripples in pond-230

Scripture

Matthew 26:59-63a (NIV)

The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for false evidence against Jesus so that they could put him to death. But they did not find any, though many false witnesses came forward. Finally two came forward and declared, "This fellow said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.'" Then the high priest stood up and said to Jesus, "Are you not going to answer? What is this testimony that these men are bringing against you?" But Jesus remained silent.

Consider

Jesus' trial was rigged from the start.

Treasures of a Good Heart

Treasure Chest open-210

Scripture

Matthew 12:35 (NLT)

"A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart."

Consider

In this passage, Jesus is confronting the hypocrisy of the religious leaders, who claimed to represent God yet refused to acknowledge the divinity and authority of God's Son. They were trying to discredit Jesus by accusing him of being in league with the devil. Jesus, however, turns the tables on them and accuses them of the same thing.
