October 18 / Proverbs 18 / Matthew 18


Proverbs 18:9

A lazy person is as bad as someone who destroys things.

Do not erroneously think there is no ripple effect by sitting around doing nothing.
By laziness, you still affect those around you, by withholding blessing, by a lack
of tangible demonstrations of God’s love.
We are “blessed to be a blessing” as they say…

Matthew 18:7
Temptations are inevitable, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting.
I’ll be honest, this verse scares me a little…in a good way.

Matthew 18:21-35
The anchor of unforgiveness.
If you have any bitterness, unforgiveness, or unresolved anything toward anyone, I strongly
urge you to let it go immediately. I can’t think of much that will hold you back spiritually
more than that of not forgiving someone.
Jesus speaks so plainly & strongly about this area. He knows the great barrier it creates to
intimacy with Him & effectiveness in our lives. Key to peace is forgiveness.
How we forgive, that is how we will be forgiven.
