    I often worry that my own sin is too great for me, and that God surely cannot forgive all of my wrongdoings.
    Thankfully, I know that he can and will forgive you and me if we humble ourselves before him.
    I enjoy reading the Old Testament books of Kings and Chronicles because I often can see glimpses of who God is.
    These four books tell much of the rise and fall of kings of Israel and Judah. One such king was Manasseh, who learned a great lesson regarding God’s great power and his willingness to forgive.
