Teach me to love

Jeremiah 9-12, Matthew 6:1-18


And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. Matthew 6:12


In this line of the Lord’s Prayer we are asking for God to give us his heart so forgiveness becomes a gift we offer—not a burden we bear. Yes there are consequences if we refuse to forgive others. Yet, if we don’t want to forgive, then our heart has not been changed. Please don’t look at this as a deal with God (I’ll forgive so you can forgive me) but as prayer for God to make me like him.
