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.

    Verses 22, 23: Jesus here contrasted a simple eye and an evil eye. A simple eye is focused on serving God but an evil eye is focused on selfish things.

    V. 33. Wife and I are retired. When we need extra money the Lord provides. Last few months, spirit of saving money has been on me. When the amount reached $4000, the saving spirit left me. Very noticeable, the departing. The Lord always supplies. Don't know what the needs will be but I know He has supplied to take care of it. Jesus never disappoints but feeds us and clothes us. Praise His Name!!!
