"Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors" Matt. 6:12. " Familiar words from the Lord's prayer. Actually that is a bit misleading, for this prayer was not prayed by Jesus, but given to the disciples for them to pray. After all, since Jesus had no sin, why would He pray to be forgiven? The Beatles sang "All you Need is Love" but today love has become almost synonymous with sexuality -- or it has become just commonplace, such as when we unthinkingly respond, "Luv you!" as we wave goodbye or as we hang up the phone. In the past year or so, the Lord has been teaching me that God's love is all bound up with forgiveness. If I want the Lord to forgive me, I must learn how to forgive others. I can't love someone I don't forgive. This means being willing to restore a relationship which has been broken even if the other person is not willing to be forgiven. We learn to love, because He first loved us and forgave us.
