Feb 20

Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Saturday. February 20th. The 7th day of the Hebraic week. And everyone says “HalleluYah.”

Our verse today is Matthew 6:12

verse 12. It’s all about forgiving others. If you have followed my teachings much, you will know that this is a topic that is dear to my heart. We even have a full length teaching dedicated to this topic alone. It’s titled “The Need for Forgiveness.” Please make the time to watch it when you get a chance.

We see here that Yashua’s model prayer includes a request of the forgiveness of our sins. Yet, it comes with a catch. It’s based on our forgiving of others who have sinned against us. In other words, our forgiveness is based on how we forgive others. That’s a concept that many struggle with. After all, YHWH forgives all who ask right? True, but the moment you have been forgiven, you are expected to do the same for others. Otherwise you’d be a hypocrite saying you can be forgiven but you don’t have to forgive.

It seems that everyone is quick to say “Nobody’s perfect.” when we make a mistake or offend someone. Yet, how rare that phrase comes to mind when we are the offended. Keep things in perspective. YHWH has forgiven us of much more and greater sin against Him than what one may have done to you. I’m not saying it’s easy. Yet, it can be done. And should be done.

So, do you want to be forgiven? How well do you forgive others?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day.

And again, for more on this topic, please our teaching “The Need for Forgiveness.”

Until tomorrow, shalom!
