Do you want others to forgive you? Most importantly, do you want God to forgive you? In order to be forgiven, you also have to be able to forgive. That applies to others just as well as to yourself. What happens if you don’t forgive? You will miss out on a wonderful life and oftentimes feel resentful, miserable, and angry instead. How is God supposed to forgive you if you can’t forgive?
This is NOT what He wants for you and your life! God has gifted each and every one of us with a special gift. He created you in order to fulfill a specific role to perform a specific mission for which you need all your energy.
As you forgive, you will be forgiven.
