…Meditation Moment : Matthew 6:14; Mark 11:25

quote 2

If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins. Matthew 6:14-15 (NLT)

But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too. Mark 11:25 (NLT)

  1. This has been on my heart for the past couple of weeks! Forgiveness allows us to start anew in our own lives. Thanks for the confirmation God. 😉

  2. Honestly, this has been my struggle over the years. Someone “important” forgot my bday? I was devastated. Someone not sport something I am doing, like my blog, my S&D business, or something else important to me…I was crushed. I have noticed that although people still “sin” against me that I have already forgiven them and moved on. This may not be exactly what you meant when you wrote this post but this is def how it speaks to me. Thank the Lord for his LIVING word.

    • I completely understand, Karen, and am thankful that this spoke to you in some way. I believe these Meditation Moments are just for that reason…to speak to us in the way God wants it to…to reveal another facet of His heart or another way we can become more like Him! I’m thankful that for every “important” person that may offend you, in turn, you have a host of more people in your life who love you with full intention!

  3. So true. This is difficult, especially if the person does not ask to be forgiven. In my heart, I know that forgiveness has to be granted in order to move forward. Thanks for the reminder, and Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Thanks, Trinity! Happy Thanksgiving to you as well! I agree – it seems like such a difficult task, but thankfully, we have His power to do what appears to be impossible. There is such freedom in it, when we can. Thankful that you are encouraged too!
