Text: And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors…For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:Â But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. (Matthew 6:12,14-15)
Tweet: The only part of the Model or Lordâ€™s Prayer that our Lord reemphasized is the part about asking God to forgive us as we forgive others (Matthew 6:12). Have you ever really thought about this; do you really want to pray for God to forgive you the exact same way you forgive others? Chances are you donâ€™t. Yet Jesus taught that Godâ€™s forgiveness of our sins is in direct correlation to our forgiveness of others who have sinned against us (Matthew 6:14-15). In light of this, we should start being as forgiving towards others as we want God to be toward us.
