TEXT: MATTHEW 18:21-35 (Please refer to your KJV Bible for scripture reference)
KEY VERSE: MATTHEW 18:33
Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
Today’s text teaches on when a brother refuses to offer forgiveness:
In this text, the man grasped his fellow servant by the throat. The people around gave evil report about him. Some people are too proud to say sorry to their wives or husbands (spouse). Don't give indirect forgiveness; speak out the offences from your mouth. When you refuse to forgive, you will face divine judgment. If you are forgiven, can you not be merciful to others too? The judgment of God will certainly catch up with you if you don't learn to forgive.
Scriptural instances on forgiveness:
a. Jacob solicited and received Esau’s forgiveness. (Genesis 32:3-11)
b. Joseph forgave his brethren when they came to Egypt. (Genesis 50:15-21)
e. The prodigal son received his father's forgiveness. (Luke 15:11-32)
d. Paul wrote Philemon to forgive Onesimus. (Philemon 10-18).
Learn to apologize to others where it is required.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: To forgive, drop your pride.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Mercy Oh Lord (2x) Father show as your mercy…..
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Genesis 33-35; Matthew 11
