I’m a debtor

12 November 2022

Every moment I’m in debt to the Lord, spiritually and bodily. Spiritually for my sins; bodily because I take for granted all his material gifts, such as food, clothing, air, heating, light and generally all the necessities of life. How then, can it not be a joy for me to forgive the ‘debts’ of my brothers and sisters, both spiritual and material, when God forgives me the multitude of my offences, times without number.
