Review this week’s message.
Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come ... So watch yourselves. “If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ you must forgive them.” The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”

Matthew 6:14-15 NIV

Father, thank You for the forgiveness You’ve offered each of us. Help us never to forget the love You’ve shown us. Give us the faith we need to extend that same love to others through forgiveness. In Jesus’ name, amen.
