Psalm 103; Exodus 3:1-8, 13-15; 1 Corinthians 10:1-6, 10-12; Luke 13:1-9

Forgive us our trespasses

Some of the thinking, in Matthew, was that the people killed in a disaster were worse sinners. Jesus puts them straight. No, they were no more or less guilty of sin than the rest of us. However Jesus still doesn’t let them off the hook. Jesus invites them to repent of their sins or then they really will perish. These are tough words but in today’s psalm we hear that Yahweh’s “indignation does not last forever”. Jesus is full of love and forgiveness. Help us Jesus be sorry for our sins and seek your forgiveness.
