Matt 18: 35: So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
Refusing to forgive is a sin. If we receive forgiveness from God, we must give it to others who hurt us. We cannot hold grudges or seek revenge. We are to trust God for justice and forgive the person who offended us.
That does not mean we must forget the offense, however, usually, that’s beyond our power.
An unforgiving, vengeful, or bitter spirit will not only affect you and those around you, but it will also separate you from the blessing of God. Therefore you must forgive others no matter what the offense.
Thank you Pastor Pat Buckley for putting this transformative information online.
To get a prayer to help with forgiveness come back next week!
