“Don’t Shoot Your Eye Out”
Text: Matthew 6:12-15
We can “xmiss” if we don’t take care of what unforgiveness can do to ruin a potential for giving presence . So why do we hesitate to forgive?
- It feels GOOD to hold a GRUDGE
- We don’t want to get HURT AGAIN
- We mistake forgiveness as being an EMOTION instead of a DECISION
What you need understand about forgiveness.
- Forgiven people FORGIVE
- "...and forgive us our sins,as we have forgiven those who sin against us.” -Matthew 6:12
- You MUST forgive because YOU have been forgiven.
- "But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.” -Matthew 6:15
Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
