    Looking for a bible verse that refers to laying your grudge against someone down at the cross and going to forgive
    them personally. ????

    The bible verse Matthew 5:24 talks about leaving thy gift at the altar and go the way of first being reconciled to thy brother (or sister or anyone I believe is in the place where reconciliation is needed) and then return and offer gifts at the altar. We approach the father in heaven always through his son Jesus Christ. That favour we receive and use because of the work the Lord Jesus Christ did at the cross.Blessings

    Matthew Chapter 6: 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

    15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

    What happen to the dinosaurs ? How did they become extinct, and if created,why so big,I'm sure they must have eaten humans. Genesis 1:24-31,says and he created beast, would that be the dinosaurs, and after the fall,they became ferocious just like lions tigers and bears

    Mathew 5:23-24

    The 1st response was great !! & looks like a lot of work went into that answer. I agree fully with response but I too, knew there was an actual scripture that said something like that.

    Found it! Matthew 5:23-24 Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the alter and there remember that your brother
    has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the alter. First go and be re-
    conciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift. Is the alter meaning
    communion? What if it's someone from many many years ago.

    Doesn't matter why, where, when or how....if you feel the God through the Holy Spirit is calling you to make things right with person...Please do so....ask God to help you know how and what to say. Ask him to soften the heart and ears of the person to hear and accept what you need to say....You can call, write or go in person. Ask God to show you and He will...
    There is a reason it is on your heart....even if it wasn't your' fault...please do it...

    In this particular case it is my father that feels he needs to tell my mother, whom they have been divorced for over 45
    years, that he has forgiven her. Not that she was at any more fault than he was, but because he hated her up until a few
    years ago, which I don't know my mom even realized it. She does not hate him and has been happily re-married for 40
    years. There has been drama over the years, always him dragging things up about my mom, which she doesn't even know about because I've never told her. This is to make himself feel better but I feel like my 83 year old mother does not need the drama. I want to obey God and give him the correct advice but it doesn't feel right. Advice?
