"To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you." ~ Lewis B. Smedes, 20th century author

Reflection Questions:

  1. What stories of forgiveness have I heard or experienced that have inspired me?
  2. In what way(s) am I like or unlike the servant in the story Jesus told in Matthew 18:21-35?
  3. When is forgiveness difficult for me to offer? Why might that be?
  4. How has my struggle to forgive someone else held me back in my own growth and joy?
  5. What step do I sense God calling me to make today?
