Jesus tried to help His followers live in faith. So He taught them to forgive as God forgives us. Forgiveness is not an option for the Christian.
Jesus healed ten men with leprosy, a deadly disease of the skin. Only one came back to thank Jesus. Giving thanks to God is an act of worship and faith. Give thanks to the Lord because He is good and His love lasts forever.
Jesus teaches His followers to always be ready for His return. That means trying to grow closer to Him, giving God thanks, trusting in His love and forgiveness and expecting His return at any time. It means telling other about God who gives life, loves and forgives. It also means warning about the dangers of ignoring or fighting against Christ.
