May I grasp what’s private,
And respect it;
Confess each sin to you
When I hurt another person,
And hurry to forgive
Those who hurt me.
A gossip goes around telling secrets, but those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence (Proverbs 11:13; NLT).
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9; RSV).
If you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift (Matthew 5:23-4; NIV).
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).
