Mark 2:1-12

We live in a world where forgiveness doesn't come easy. When we've been wounded we tend to hold grudges rather than give second chances. Unless we can be assured the offender is truly repentant than forgiveness just doesn't even seem to be an option. But whereas we are ususally hesitant to forgive we find that Jesus offers it freely and in abundance. Clearly Jesus understands something that we often miss--without forgiveness true healing isn't possible.
