Transcript Transcript

One day, our Lord Jesus reminded His followers about some very important things. He said that we need to forgive others when they do something wrong or hurt us. Jesus said that if we forgive others, God will also forgive us when we sin. But if we do not forgive other people, God will not forgive us.
Our Lord also said that when we fast, we should look and act like we usually do. He said that hypocrites (people just pretending to be Godly) show off by how they look and act when they fast. We should not fast so that people see how good we are. We should fast so that God can see that we want to be more like Him.
Then our Lord Jesus said we should not care so much about things we can get here on Earth. The earthly stuff we have can break, get rusty, or someone could steal it. Instead, we should care about heavenly things, which can’t break, get rusty, or be stolen. Our Lord reminds us that whatever we care about the most is where our hearts will be.

1. Jesus taught us how to be His disciples, or followers. What should we do if someone has done something wrong to us, or is mean to us?
2. If we forgive someone who has hurt us, what will God do?
3. God doesn’t want us to brag about ourselves, even when we are doing something good, like fasting.
4. God knows when we do good things. Jesus told us we add to our treasure in heaven when we follow what He taught us. What are some ways you have followed Jesus and added treasure in Heaven?

"By listening to you on my PC at work, some who do not believe in God, and only know what non-Orthodox people tell them are tuning in to listen to your music and prayers, as well as all the educational material you supply. I know I have learned more about my faith due to your efforts than anywhere else. Thank you for your hard work and talent that you bring to this ministry."
