Forgive or Fuggedaboutit…

Posted by: on Dec 21, 2014 | One Comment

How important is it to forgive those who go out of their way to screw up our lives? Beyond critical!

Jesus made it an important part of His template for our prayer lives:

9 Pray, therefore, like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) be Your name.
 
10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
 
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
 
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven (left, remitted, and let go of the debts, and have given up resentment against) our debtors.
 
13 And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
 
14 For if you forgive people their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
 
15 But if you do not forgive others their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], neither will your Father forgive you your trespasses.

Matthew 6:9-15 [AMP]
