Matthew 6:9-13 English Standard Version (ESV)

Pray then like this:

“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day 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 evil.”

Acts 21:37-39 | ESV

As Paul was about to be brought into the barracks, he said to the tribune, “May I say something to you?” And he said, “Do you know Greek? Are you not the Egyptian, then, who recently stirred up a revolt and led the four thousand men of the Assassins out into the wilderness?” Paul replied, “I am a Jew, from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no obscure city. I beg you, permit me to speak to the people.”

Titus 3:10 | ESV

As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him’

Luke 12:13-14 | ESV

Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” But he said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or arbitrator over you?”

Ephesians 4:31-32 | ESV

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Implications: 

  1. We usually aren’t taken out by major issues we need to forgive. We are taken out by a million little wounds that never fully healed.
  2. It’s okay to set boundaries for the emotional and spiritual health of the people on both sides of a conflict.
  3. Forgiveness is a determination that the pain stops here.
  4. Naming and being honest about unresolved hurts begins the process of moving past them.
