"And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." As bread is the first need of the body, so forgiveness is for the soul. The provision for the one is as sure as for the other. We are children, but we are also sinners. We owe our right of access to the Father's presence to the precious blood of Christ and the forgiveness it has won for us.
