Passage: Matthew 6:14-15
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 47 mins 48 secs
"Forgive him? You don't know what you're asking. He doesn't deserve to be forgiven." Listen to this lesson to see that believers can't expect to be forgiven by God for what they've done wrong when they're refusing to forgive others. Learn about four categories of forgiveness and how Christ died for the sins of all mankind but that forgiveness is only applied when someone trusts in Christ as their Savior. Learn how many times Jesus taught that we should forgive others and see that at times there are consequences to our sins even when we're forgiven.

"Ahoy, mate. Bring out the treasure map." Who wouldn't like to stumble over a treasure map that led to great riches? Listen to this lesson to learn that the Bible reveals where to find real treasure and how we can store it in a totally secure place. Learn what our attitude toward money should be and how we need to avoid finding our happiness in what we own. Let your generosity and use of money reveal your life's priorities as you realize that all of our resources are from God.

Passage: Matthew 6:25-34
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 45 mins 3 secs
"Don't worry. Be happy!" It's easy enough to sing this little song but what happens when you wake up in the middle of the night and worries come swarming into your mind like buzzing bees? Listen to this lesson to understand that God is in control of your life. Since He's already done the greatest thing for us by sending His Son to die for our sins, it's no problem for Him to take care of what we need to eat, what we need to wear, and all the other details of life. See how worry is a sin and a sign that we lack faith in God. Be aware that memorizing God's Word is a great antidote to worry.

Passage: Matthew 7:1
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 1 hr 2 mins 30 secs
Do you usually think the best about other people? Or are you quick to point out how stupid someone is? Listen to this lesson to learn that in the Sermon on the Mount Jesus emphasizes that our relationship with God is what matters most. Then being kind, generous, and gracious to others will follow. Understand how our life is connected to unseen spiritual warfare and that what we do matters. As an added bonus, enjoy a review of the faith of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and see how pastors during the early days of this country helped us gain our freedom.

Passage: Matthew 7:1-6
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 44 mins 31 secs
"I'm okay but you're not so great." Is that the way you feel sometimes? Listen to this lesson to learn that we are to confess our flaws and failures in humility and dependence on God before we point out others' weaknesses. Learn about self righteousness and the arrogance cycle. Understand that while we are to evaluate others we are not to be hypocrites and try to set everyone else straight. Accept that when we decide others need to be punished, we will receive discipline in the same manner.

Passage: Matthew 7:7-12
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 49 mins 54 secs
"Dad, may I have a fish?" When your child asks that, do you hand him a snake? Hardly! Listen to this lesson to learn why Jesus says this when teaching His disciples about prayer. See how true, genuine prayer is an expression of humility and how lack of prayer in our life points out our arrogance. Hear examples of prayer in the Old Testament and why God sometimes answers "No" to prayers. Accept the challenge of persistent prayer in your own spiritual life, both alone and in prayer meetings.

Passage: Matthew 7:13-20
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 49 mins 42 secs
Shall I do this or that? Should I go here or there? So many choices. Listen to this lesson to learn about choosing between two gates, one that almost everyone likes and the other that few choose. Understand that the gate we choose determines first our eternal destiny and then many daily choices determine our quality of life after salvation. Find out who Jesus is referring to when He talks about false prophets being like wolves in sheep's clothing and that the fruits He is talking about are the words of the false prophets which lead people astray.

Passage: Matthew 7:21-23
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 56 mins 24 secs
Hey, don't miss out on eternal rewards. Sure, it's great to know you've accepted Christ as your Savior and are on your way to heaven but remember, salvation is free but rewards are earned. Listen to this lesson to learn that after salvation our life should be built on obedience to God's Word and practicing the spiritual skills in order to experience the fullness of blessing in the Millennial Kingdom. See the distinction between the judging of Church Age believers and Old Testament believers. Accept we all have daily choices to make whether we're going to live for ourselves or going to live for the Lord.

Passage: Matthew 7:24-29
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 35 mins 31 secs
Now that you've been hearing the Sermon on the Mount taught for many weeks, what's your attitude toward it? Are you as astonished as the people were in Jesus' day? Listen to this lesson to learn that Jesus is warning about the foundation upon which our faith is built. Is it a strong foundation based on God's Word or is it no more than shifting sands based on our own foolishness? See how every day we are making decisions, many with unintended consequences, and that our challenge is to make right choices based on what Jesus taught.
