The Forgiving King
Scripture: Matthew 18:21–35
The Law of Lamech
Forgiveness requires an …
…. Accurate view of ourselves.
…. Accurate view of the offender.
…. Accurate view of God.
What forgiveness is not:
- Forgiveness is not forgetting
- Forgiveness is not excusing.
- Forgiveness is not relieving the person of responsibility.
- Forgiveness is not reconciling.
Forgiveness is a decision to reverse the Law of Lamech and trust God’s justice.
Take Home Idea: If you are a forgiven one, you must also be a forgiving one.
