For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. “Matthew 6:14-15”
"Inked by forgiveness. Too often in our lives we are stuck at holding on and not forgiving. This verse is such a staggering statement, when any of us fail to forgive another person; our lack of forgiveness is a barrier to God forgiving us. Not forgiving ourselves and others places us outside the gracious forgiving love of God.
BUT THERE IS GREAT HOPE…God wants you to have freedom:
When we realize how much we have been forgiven, it enables us to make the choice to forgive others; it allows the Holy Spirit to do a deeper work in us.
CHALLENGE: Who in your life do you need to forgive?
