Matthew 18:21-35 (18:15-17 sets up the scene a bit)
The world suffers from a lack of forgiveness.
10 lies Satan wants you to believe on forgiveness:
1. Our forgiveness will make that person think they didn't hurt me.
2. Our forgiveness may condone the actions of the offender.
3. Our forgiveness releases our offender of the consequences.
4. We must feel forgiving before we can forgive. Forgiveness is a choice, not a feeling.
5. Before we forgive, we must understand "why".
6. Before we forgive, our offender must show a desire to be forgiven.
7. Before we forgive, our offender must compensate us for our loss.
8. We don't need to forgive to be healed. When we see our offender punished, we will be healed.
9. If I forgive them I give them the right to run over me again.
10. Some crimes are too horrible to forgive & God doesn't expect us to forgive them.
ABC's of forgiveness: Admit the hurt. Blame the offender. Cancel the debt.
