sermon on the mount --reciprocation

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

This is a hard prayer to make if you have not yet forgiven your debtors. It seems as though God wants us to ask of Him only what we would give to those who would ask of us.

What expectations do we have of God that we do not grant others? If we want God's mercy, we should be merciful. If we want daily bread, we should provide for those in need. If we want peace with God, we should be peaceful towards each other.
