Forgive One Another
Passage: Ephesians 4:30–4:32
In 2013, André Cassagnes died in Paris at the age of eighty-six. The French-born inventor was in his early thirties when he created a plastic device with a glass screen on which children could draw by turning little knobs. Since the inside surface of the screen was coated with aluminum powder, moving the knobs resulted in drawing images on the screen as an unseen stylus scraped away the powder. By turning the device upside down and shaking it, the images would magically disappear. Cassagnes called his little invention "L'Ecran Magique," or "the magic screen." We know it as an Etch A Sketch. One of the greatest toys of the 20th Century is also a powerful tool for us to understand God’s forgiveness and the manner in which we should forgive!
