Discussion for Matthew 18

    Matthew 18:15 doesn't say anything about whether you have forgiven the trespass or not, nor does it say anything about whether or not the brother has repented of the trespass. It doesn't say if thy brother has ought against you. It says, "if thy brother shall trespass against thee... ". Talk things out. Make peace with your brother. Don't look for excuses.

    Like the lord in verse 27, Jesus is willing to forgive all our sins so we can be blameless when we appear before Him at His Judgement Seat. We should also adopt the same posture of forgiving all those who trespass against us, countless times.
