In this teaching, Evangelist Barbara Lynch explains how not to over- spiritualize forgiveness. We have likely all heard Matthew 6:15. “But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” It is so easy to see what our brother and sister is doing wrong, while “skipping the step” of remembering what we were forgiven of and giving the devil the open door to infect us what a root of bitterness.

According to Matthew 18: 23-27 The servant was forgiven of a great debt- nearly $10 million in today’s terms- and because of the bitterness in his heart, he went looking for someone who owed him around $18, demanding payment.
