Be Wise Pt. 5 “For Giveness”

June 7, 2020

Proverbs 19:8 (TPT)

“Do yourself a favor and love wisdom. Learn all you can, then watch your life flourish and prosper!”

Love wisdom. Learn all you can. Watch your life flourish.

Proverbs 17:9

1 Peter 4:8

Matthew 18:21-22

We will either be a person who or faults.


Start talking. 

  • Which do you think is harder and why: Asking for forgiveness from someone that you have hurt or having to forgive someone who has hurt you?

Start thinking. 

  • When you think about why we should forgive others, do you think it is for their sake, our sake, God’s sake, or a little of all? Explain your answer. 
  • Who do you think it is worse for, the person living with unforgiveness in their heart or the person who they have withheld their forgiveness from? In what ways?
  • The disciple Peter wondered if there was a max limit that he was required to forgive someone. Jesus answered him this way in Matthew 18:21-22 TLB – 
    • 21 Then Peter came to him and asked, “Sir, how often should I forgive a brother who sins against me? Seven times?” 22 “No!” Jesus replied, “seventy times seven!” Why do you think Jesus answered him in this way? 
    • What do you think he was trying to teach Peter back then and us today? 

Start sharing. 

  • Share about a time when you genuinely forgave someone or you were on the receiving end of someone else’s forgiveness. What happened? What were you feeling?
  • The Bible teaches us that the wise are people who forgive other’s faults instead of finding faults in others. Read and discuss these words of wisdom:
    • Proverbs 17:9 (NLT) 9 Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends.
    • Proverbs 17:9 (TPT) 9 Love overlooks the mistakes of others, but dwelling on the failures of others devastates friendships.

Start praying. 

  • Pray and ask God to help us forgive others and/or ask others for forgiveness. Pray that we will all follow in the footsteps of Jesus. 

Start doing. 

  • Who do you need to forgive or ask forgiveness from? Don’t delay. Do it this week! Follow up with each other this week to see how we’re doing?
