Discussion for Matthew 18

    As a toddler taking his first step, our Father (with His hands stretched out to catch us) is waiting for our first steps toward Him.

    In Chapter 5 Jesus uses an extreme exaggeration (hyperbole) to warn believers of sin. Here in verses 7-10 (and again in Mark Chapter 9) He is warning nonbelievers who "despise" believers and would cause them to stumble.
  • Ike Obi
    This is a message about forgiveness, based on our fellowship with God and fellowship with others. Are there unforgiveness in my heart; are there areas of unforgiveness that I need to forgive? What do others see when they see me?
  • MARILYN MANOCCHIO
    THIS CHAPTER AND BEING REVEALED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT MEANS THAT WE SHOULD BE HUMBLE IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES FOR THIS IS THE DUTY AND SHOULD BE THE DUTY OF EACH AND EVERY CHRISTIAN. FOR THE KEYS TO SUCCESS IS PERSERVERANCE AND HUMILITY. GOD BLESS AND I PRAY THAT EACH AND EVERY CHRISTIAN IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE - THAT WOULD BE ON A UNIVERSAL BASIS MEANS WE SHOULD STRIVE TO BE MORE LIKE JESUS EACH DAY.
