Hurting and Forgiving
Matthew 18: 21-35
There are many times I have
been hurt by others more, I think from family
verbally others have hurt me physically.
have never had a problem in not forgiving anyone for
the harm they have done to me. But, there are many
in my family that just won't forgive - I always pay
"I may never forget it, but I do and will forgive."
this is what we must do, how can a person go to God
and ask for forgiveness, when you have to forgive
others as well.
You have to forgive others, whether they come to you
and ask you to forgive them or not. If it is
something you have done to them, then I urge you to
ask them to forgive you, so you then can go to Jesus
and ask for forgiveness.
There are times which is very hard to be forgiving
but we must be. It becomes very hard, when we keep
getting hurt, offended, lied to, lied on, etc.
Forgiveness is one of the most Gracious gift of
God's he gives to us, and you have to give it back.
As we receive forgiveness we are called to do the
extended forgiveness to others and let it go.
matter, how many times someone hurts us, or how many
times someone has lied to us, called us names,
stolen from us, and not willing to ask for that
forgiveness, we are still to forgive them anyway.
to forgive as many as 7 x 7 and than means
always, never ending, never refusing to forgive
anyone, because when we do not forgive other's, then
how can we go to God and ask for forgiveness for all
we have done and said, you can't.
never gave a limit to anyone, who hurt Him, look how
many times, he was hurt, He was beaten, called
names, blasphemed, spit at, kicked, and crucified.
How can you determine how many times you are to say
"I forgive you"
told so many times from a family member,"I am not
going to keep asking for forgiveness for something I
already have, or I am not going to keep on saying I
have offended anyone, we are to go to those whom we
have offended, lied on, called names, stolen from
etc, and ask them to forgive us, there is not a
limit on how many times we are to ask for
forgiveness when we have hurt someone, or someone
has hurt us..
Even if they just keep doing it, still forgive them
no matter what. Ask the Lord to help you forgive
others, as you have been. Matthew 18:21-35
