Mountains and Mole Hills (Matthew 18:15-20, Matthew 5:23)

Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Regardless if you've served God or not, you've ran into a time where you've hurt someone or someone has hurt you. God has clearly given us directions on how to deal with hurt. Everyone is guilty of having pride. We must always have ahold of our pride. There are people everywhere that are hurt. Being hurt is real and suffer everyday. If we are hurt by someone, we are to go to them and tell them the fault or hurt. We should be humble enough to forgive them of that hurt. One can say all they want that they are serving God but until you humble to one another one is not. If one isn't willing to forgive others then God will not forgive. The world will tell you that you should keep it to yourself and once you are really sorry, then, you are to go to them to say sorry. Pride keeps us from fixing the hurt. What happens when you allow an injury to go unattended? When Jesus hung on the cross, He removed the hate towards others. If you've got a problem with someone, that relationship is never repaired until we go to them about it. We don't fight against each other, we fight against the devils (spiritual).

Matthew 18:15-20

15Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. 18Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (KJV)

Matthew 5:23

23Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; (KJV)
