Reflection Mt 5: 20-26

In this Gospel, God teaches us a very important life lesson that we should follow all year especially during the time of Lent. Lent is a time for renewal and forgiveness. This forgiveness can be between God and ourselves, however, it must also be between our brothers and sisters on Earth. In the Gospel, God says that in order for us to fully receive his forgiveness we must also learn to forgive people that have hurt or betrayed us. This can be very difficult especially if the person that hurt us was someone very dear to our hearts, but if we think about it we also hurt God when we don't go to Mass or pray to him at night to give thanks. We must learn to forgive all in order for us to be truly forgiven as well.
