“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
We are always able to start new with God. When we repent, we are given full forgiveness of our sins because of the death and resurrection of Jesus.
In light of our new beginning, God commands that in return, we forgive others and extend grace as we have been shown Grace.
It can be one of the hardest things we face in life! The pain and hurt others cause us is real and great. But, the pain of living with bitterness and unforgiveness can poison your soul and destroy you.
When we forgive others, we are not saying what they did was OK, but we are releasing them to God and letting go of it’s hold on us.
God Bless You
