I’m a debtor

5 March 2022

At every moment, I’m a debtor to the Lord, spiritually and bodily. Spiritually for my sins; bodily because I receive all the material benefits he gives, such as food, clothing, the air that I breathe, warmth, light and, in general, all the necessities of life. How, then, can I not be glad to forgive the ‘debts’ of others to me, both spiritual and material, when God forgives the multitude of my transgressions times without number?
