Day #1 - Forgiving Others

Monday, April 15th, 2013

Matthew 6:9-15

“This, then, is how you should pray:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”

Reflection

This is the prayer that Jesus teaches his disciples. Included in this prayer is a part asking God to forgive as we also forgive others. Jesus repeats this after the prayer emphasizing forgiveness and the importance of forgiving others. There is a condition on being forgiven, we must also forgive others. When we come before God and gratefully acknowledge that God has forgiven us we are led to also forgive others. We are forgiven therefore we forgive.

Responding to the Word

Think of a time when you were forgiven by God. It could have been in prayer, during worship, or a time of reflection. Remember how powerful that experience was, how life changing. Forgiving someone else can be just as powerful and life changing. Is there someone you need to forgive? Bring that person before God in prayer. Extend forgiveness just as God has forgiven you.
