Mathew West has a song, 'Forgiveness', that talks about how important it is. It's something that is sorely needed in the world today. Forgiveness does more for the person forgiving than the person being forgiven.
Forgiveness can be difficult. In our day-to-day people will do or say things that offend us, rather than hold a grudge – the Bible teaches us to forgive them. Having an unforgiving heart leads to bitterness, and a heart that is bitter can not love as it ought to love. Here are 14 Bible Verses on Forgiveness to encourage your heart. adiligentheart.com
Lamentations 3:23 No matter how big a mess we made yesterday, today is a new day and when we turn to Him for forgiveness He wipes our slate clean. He doesn’t hold our past against us, He just continually loves us. Nothing can change that.
It's not a polite request of us . . . it's a command. I don't want to hold anything against anyone because on my day, I want to hear Jesus say, "well done good and faithful servant." Dear Lord, help me be the woman you created me to be. Amen.
