Forgiving others

Matt 18:21-22 and on… (NLT)

Parable of the Unforgiving Debtor

21 Then Peter came to him and asked, “Lord, how often should I forgive someonewho sins against me? Seven times?”

22 “No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven!

I do not think there is anything else that tests and practices our patience like the above verse… Basically every time somebody bumps into you while you walk in the mall or swirls in front of you while driving on the highway, you need to forgive them, because Jesus Will forgive you every time…  How selfish of us if we cannot for”give “, but we expect forgiveness from God?


If you read further down the chapter, you will see that we will not enter heaven the day we go there if we cannot forgive our fellow brothers and sisters from within our hearts.  Now as a christian, I do not want to get a surprise one day when I get to heaven and I’m not allowed to enter due to unforgiving hatred in my heart.  It’s really just awkward for a few seconds when you forgive someone, but afterwards you carry on as if nothing has happened and you end up feeling better…  hatred and things like stress can really get a person down.  And when you release yourself from these things you feel energized.  I think our hearts are made to contain love, kindness, grace etc not to be overloaded with hatred, anger, sin etc.  So many people pass away and you find out that they could not forgive someone for something or never made peace with certain people. I do not know about you, but I think it’s that last verse in Matthew 18:35 that takes place in such a situation.
Remember, God is a just God, and if He said He will punish us if we do not forgive, He has to.  So the devil comes along and says; “God, you know that Jakes has not forgiven Mnr. Pietie for something he did to him…. You said that you will punish your people if they cannot forgive…”  Then God has to allow it…

You wont get healing from cancer or any other sickness when you carry remorse in your heart, because Go’s Word says He will punish us if we do not forgive one another…


I know this is a tough piece of meat to take a bite of, but it’s necessary to talk about these things…


Be patient and love one another.


Always walk in the light, then you will not have to fear the things in the darkness as they cannot hide in the light!
