“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?

  1. It feels GOOD to hold a GRUDGE
  2. We don’t want to get HURT AGAIN
  3. 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



Colossians 3:13
Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
