IF YOU CANNOT FORGIVE, YOU ARE A WEED, AND A STUMBLING BLOCK

Psalms 65:3 Though we are overwhelmed by our sins, you forgive them all.

Psalms 130:3  LORD,if you punished people for all their sins, no one would be left. But you forgave

1 John 1:8-9  …if we confess our sins, he will forgive our sins       (1 Tim 1:15-16)

Remember:

Mat 13:51      After explaining the meaning of the story about the weeds in the field   Jesus asked:

                                           “Do you understand all these things?”

             41  they will gather out of his kingdom all who cause sin and who do evil ( nasb  they will gather out of his kingdom all stumbling blocks.... )

Mat 18:1-7         “ Who is greatest in the kingdom of heaven ?  4  anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven   6 whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble…… 7 …woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes! ( Romans 14:13, 1 Cor 8:9, Luke 17:1-2)

Remember Jesus saying:  The kingdom of heaven is like a kingwho decided to collect money owed

Mat 18:33 You should have showed mercy to that other servant, just as I showed mercy to you  35  This king did what my heavenly Father will do to you if you do not forgive …..

2 Tim 3:1-5  In the last days there will be many troubles, because people will love themselves …..  3  …will refuse to forgive…  5  Stay away from those people

From the Prophet Micah:  Micah 6:8  The LORD has told you what is good; he has told you what he wants from you:  …….

Mat 6:14-15  …if you do not forgive … your Father will not forgive your sins

Luke 6:36-37    Be merciful… Don’t judge others… Do not condemn … Forgive .. so that you will not be judged, or condemned,  and you will be forgiven

Eph 4:30-32  do not make the Holy Spirit sad.  ..forgive each other just as God forgave you in Christ
