….. AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO SIN AGAINST US?


I was privileged to be in an informal bible study yesterday and we all got talking about forgiveness.

I got home and this part of what is famously called ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ just would not get out of my head.

Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us’- Mathew 6:12

Now I’ve prayed that prayer by rote since I was old enough to talk but now I’m rethinking my words.

Yikes!!!! That’s a really dangerous sentence to pray!

If God really forgives me the way I forgive others, I don’t know about you but I’m in serious trouble.

I do not want God forgiving  me the way I have been forgiving others. That would so not be nice.

So this just does to me what the word of God always does- It is reflecting an areas in my life that needs work.

Lesson for the day: Forgive like you want to be forgiven. No shortcuts.

This is going to take God. Human will or intellect won’t cut it.

Who’s with me?
