Faith Building Verse-Matthew 6:12

October 25th, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Faith-Building Verse is Matthew 6:12.

Jesus taught us to pray, “Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”

There is healing in confession, but confession requires humility. There is also healing in extending forgiveness to others. That too, requires humility. Forgiveness is a gift to receive, and an expression of grace toward others.

Colossians 3:13 says, “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”

This Faith-Building Verse inspires us to seek God’s forgiveness when we have wronged Him and to forgive others when they have wronged us in the Year of Relationship.
