Music & the Gospel: Rough Water, Travie McCoy

Sunday’s gospel is challenging. Jesus calls his followers to forgive those who harm us. Not only are we called to forgive, we are called to show compassion as children of God. “Rough Water” is a song about forgiveness but even more about the promise of love through difficult times.

Key Lines: We been through rough water anytime it was tougher / But the fact I came back to remind you I love ya / And if that’s not enough, well I can one up ya / I pinky promise touch thumbs I’ll never make you suffer

Questions: Why do we cause harm to others? What does it mean to truly forgive? What is better about showing or not showing forgiveness to those who hurt you? Why do you think Jesus calls us to forgive those who hurt us?
