Part of the family

Not the same but ONE
we must become who God wants us to be
In a family there will be Family Fued
know someone who never dates long and is always looking to FIND the right one?
What will they do once they have caught the one?
We must become who we need to be in Christ before we will ever see others as we should
Can’t see others in God’s view until we BECOME one of God’s children
Matthew 6:31
Matthew 6:31–7:7 ESV
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. “Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you. “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
Matthew 6:31–34 ESV

Past or future
The only way to get to tomorrow is by today
Matthew 7:1–7 ESV
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.

Give self to anyone who calls you pretty
See speck in BROTHER’S EYE…
someone close
Look for what they are not rather than what they’ve got
different
What we magnify we get more of
wife with groceries make feel strong
wife who puts down cripples
IF you came to church this morning looking for something bad YOU WILL FIND IT
seek and you will find
BUT did you know that the sawdust comes from the same material as the log?
Love God — Love Neighbor — As Self
It’s God’s job not yours — It’s God’s job not someone elses
He knows what you need and HAS what you need
Jesus began teaching an idea that long before something happens in your life— IT HAPPENS IN YOUR HEART
Matthew 5:21–25 ESV
“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Come to terms quickly with your accuser while you are going with him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison.
Matthew 5:21
Matthew 5:21–22 ESV

what you allow to have access to your heart can leave you with “hell on earth”
Enemy’s agenda: Destruction -seek kill destroy
Strategy is division — Jesus said “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand
Great marriages don’t just end
small offenses
one at a time

the closer the relationship the greater the opportunity for pain or love
unmet expectations
something stupid that was said
Chris to Nicole
turn back on
end in back
FB- The reason it's so hard for you to stay happy is because you've made it so easy for you to get offended!
Offense is an event… offended is a decision
Matthew 5:23 ESV
So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you,
altar is for giving self
Matthew 5:23–25 ESV
So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Come to terms quickly with your accuser while you are going with him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison.
Settle matters quickly
starts with “FOOL”
v. 21 Brother
v.25 accuser/enemy
Heart issue
release starts in your heart
seek forgiveness to provide freedom from offense to another but find that YOU were the one who needed set free from it
BE RECONCILED WITH BROTHER
Matthew 18:15–19 ESV
“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.
