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.
and when I wake up you are still with me. Psalm 139:18 This bible verse is so comforting especially during times of hardship because it reassures us that He never leaves our side. He is always there with open arms that overflow with love, grace and forgiveness. #psalm139
Before the cross, the bible says "forgive so that you will be forgiven"...after the cross it's "forgive AS your Heavenly Father has forgiven you" We are now free to forgive, not as a threat, it's all about Love!
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.
