Matthew 6: 12, 13: “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” What kind of temptation do we ask deliverance from? Adultery, stealing, killing, or covetousness? In context with the rest of the prayer, there can only be one answer: the temptation to forgive our debtors. Those other things aren’t good by any means, but Jesus considered unforgiveness as a much more serious temptation, one that would affect your own forgiveness from God. It’s there in black and white, like it or not.
