Forgive Like You Want to be Forgiven

How do you feel about forgiveness? You probably feel great about it unless you have some forgiving to do… As God teaches us how to pray in The Lord’s Prayer, he’s also teaching us how to live. Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors. He’s basically saying forgive like you want to be forgiven.

Other texts in this message: Psalm 103:12, Matthew 6:14-15; 18:21-35
