I forgive you! Let's practice saying that. Was it difficult for you to say? Forgiveness is something that every person deals with believer or non-believer. The key to forgiveness is recognizing it's power. The Bible says if we don't forgive others then God doesn't forgive us. That's a powerful statement! I don't know about you but I need God's forgiveness. That alone is enough motivation to forgive! Forgiveness leads to bitterness, anxiety, and frustration! Forgiveness throws your whole game off. You can't worship the same and to be honest with you God is not pleased with your worship. The Bible says therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Forgiveness is an essential element in our walk with God. Don't let unforgiveness control you the results are disastrous! I forgive you! Is that hurt or that pain that caused you to have that unforgiving spirit worth jeopardizing your relationship with God? I don't think so. Just forgive it will allow you to live a more productive and peaceful life! I forgive you!
