Are you in debt?

Matthew 6:12, 14-15

12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

14 For if you forgive others for their transgressions your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

15 But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.

Are you in debt? What is your debt to income ration? These questions are important to diagnose our financial health.  What about your spiritual health? What is your debt to faith ratio? How does your faith impact your daily life? Has grace transformed you into a debtor who extends grace to others? Verse 12 does not teach works-salvation, but a salvation that transforms us into God-honoring disciples.  Verse 12 reveals that it is a sin to not forgive others since our indebtedness to God is far greater than any offense we have endured from others.  Are you in debt? Do you forgive others?
