More On Forgiveness and Guideposts – Weekly Bible Scriptures

 

 

Early this week, I needed to step back and take a long look at what I was feeling during (what felt like to me), a small family crises. I did not like what was happening and how I was handling my feelings! 🙁

I needed to look up some Bible scriptures on “forgiveness” (again). My family means the world to me; just like the rest of us. However, we all need to stop sometimes and take notice what is going on in our lives and also notice what IS IMPORTANT. Swallow some pride and let things roll off, and just let things go for your sanity and also your family’s sanity! 😉

Some Scriptures On Forgiveness

Psalm 86:4-5 Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.

Psalm 103:8-12 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

Matthew 5:22-24 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

Luke 23:43 “…Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.” And he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” (Jesus speaking to the thief on the cross)

Weekly Scriptures Arguing and Fighting – Forgiveness

 

 

 

Good afternoon, 🙂

 

Hey we all argue once in awhile, and some of us call it fighting. It’s nature to not agree on everything. We are all made unique with our own opinions and feelings. That is what makes us all interesting. If we were all the same with the same opinions, feelings, and views about everyday life and the world around us, then this world would be quite a boring place, wouldn’t you think?

 

So with that said, there will always be arguements and various unique opinions and thoughts. We are all human and not the same; we are all unique.

 

What does the Bible say about arguing and fighting??

 

Matthew 18:15

If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.

Matthew 12:36-37

I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned

Thessalonians 5:9

For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ

Proverbs 28:25

A greedy man stirs up strife, but the one who trusts in the Lord will be enriched

Psalm 144:1

Of David. Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle

1 John 4:1

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world

 

Some scriptures on forgiveness

 

Psalm 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise

Psalm 86:4-5 Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.

Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

 Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.

Psalm 103:8-12 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

 

Accept the ever standing invitation from Jesus for forgiveness of all sins through His blood!

 

Hope you all have a great week! 🙂

 

Bible Scriptures For The Week – Forgiveness

 

 

 

We are not born with a forgiving spirit, are we? Of course not! None of us are. However, through prayer and reading God’s word, we can forgive AND be forgiven. 😉

 

I personally know people that hold grudges to the bitter end. Will they be forgiven? That’s between them and God and I know within my heart that I should not judge them. They will be judged at the end of days or whenever they pass on.

 

However, it’s hard sometimes to always have a forgiving spirit. It’s natural to be angry, hurt, or even spiteful at someone that has betrayed or wronged us in some way. But God is always there by our side readily, and willing to forgive. HE will always forgive us if we ask him, except for one sin…

 

There is one sin that cannot be forgiven. I was taught this at an early age. And that is to deny the Holy Spirit. It says it all in the scripture below

 

Matthew 12:31-32 “And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.”

 

I’ve searched the scriptures on “forgiveness and my findings are included below.

 

Matthew 11:28-30

 

“Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

 

Psalm 86:5

 

“For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.”

 

Luke 17:4

 

If he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times comes back to you and says, “I repent,” forgive him.

 

Matthew 18:21-22

 

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you,

not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”

 

Colossians 3:13

 

Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

 

Have a forgiving heart today and every day, and pray for those that wrong you. =)

 

Hope you have a great week!  🙂
