SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPELS Matthew 18:21-35

Read 182 Times

Matthew 18:21-35


1. Jesus surprised Peter by telling him he needed to forgive seventy-seven times. Perhaps you have known the truth of this when something reminds you of a past hurt and you find you need in your heart to forgive again the person who hurt you. What was this like for you? How has a capacity to have a forgiving heart helped you?

2. Sometimes we need to forgive ourselves for things we regret about past behavior. What happens to you when you cannot do this? How has your ability to forgive yourself for past mistakes influenced your attitude towards yourself now?

3. Are there people whose ability to forgive has inspired you? Recall them and the forgiveness they showed and give thanks for their example.
