Wesley's Notes for Matthew 6:12

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 6:12


Mt 6:12 Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Debts means moral obligations unfulfilled--our shortcomings, our sins. Let it be noted with emphasis that God is asked to forgive us as we forgive others. We ask, in other words, that he may mete out to us what we measure to others.

    Matthew 6 says to me that in order to win the world for Christ, and see good days, we must be like him; following HIS example, then watch God work! :-)

    6:5-6 Do not draw attention to yourself, praying out loud and repetitive. Pray with humility and reverence, and God will draw nearer to you, hear you and bless you.

    The secret is verse 33... Seek ye first his kingdom and all these things will be added to you....this is a promise that the Lord will care for us if only we seek him. In your thoughts and quiet times look for the Lord's hand in everthing.

    Mathew 6:14 "For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you." SIMPLE SCRIPTURE TO UNDERSTAND BUT SOMETIMES IS HARD TO DO! THINK ABOUT IT LIKE THIS: WHO ARE WE TO NOT FORGIVE THE HURT SOMEBODY CAUSED US, WHEN WE CAUSED HURT TO GOD BY NOT ONLY SINNING, BUT HAVING TO SEE HIS ONLY SON TREATED LIKE AN ANIMAL JUST TO SAVE OUR SOULS FROM A BURNING HE
