Prayer

Consequences

If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone (Matthew 18:15; NRSV).

So then, putting away all falsehood, let all of us speak the truth to our neighbours, for we are members of one another. Be angry but do not sin (Ephesians 4:25-6).

Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us (Luke 11:4; NLT).

Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:44; NIV).

……………………………………………………………………………..

 

Lord God,
When someone hurts me,
I talk to them about it privately.

If they don’t apologise,
Or even acknowledge
The harm they’ve done,
I can forgive them,
And I can pray for them –

But I can’t relate to them
As if the damage they did
To our relationship
Has been resolved.

    You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation however I to find this topic to be actually one thing that I believe I’d by no means understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking ahead in your next post, I’ll try to get the dangle of it!
