FAMILY: forgive… but don’t forget
CHOOSE FORGIVENESS (week 3)

Everyone is weird + Everyone has family + Families are weird = Tension.

Crazy families in the Bible

“Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” Jesus replied, ” ‘you must love the lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ this is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:36-39 (NLT)

I can have a right relationship with God when I seek [support us] /> I can have right relationships with others when I OFFER FORGIVENESS

“So if you are presenting a sacrifice[a] at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, 24 leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God. Matthew 5:23-24 (NLT)

WHEN HAPPENS WHEN I DON’T FORGIVE?

I disobey God’s INSTRUCTIONS

• Forgiveness is a choice of [support us] /> • Forgiveness isn’t a feeling, it’s a decision.

My anger is INTENSIFIED

I re-live painful EXPERIENCES

If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins. Matthew 6:14-15 (NLT)

“I can’t”… usually means “I won’t”

HOW I CAN BEGIN TO FORGIVE?

1. Identify who has HURT YOU

2. Determine what they OWE YOU

3. Cancel their DEBT

Forgiveness doesn’t make ANY SENSE unless you’ve been forgiven.

Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Colossians 3:13 (NLT)

The Cross is the only place forgiveness makes sense.
