For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 6:14,15

Unforgiveness is a trap that will ensnare you and the person you don’t extend forgiveness to. Jesus died on the cross so you can be forgiven of your sin and the power of other people’s sin to trap you is disarmed. This is why people who follow Jesus can display amazing forgiveness to others.

Forgiveness is not pretending that an offense is okay. Forgiveness is not weakness. Forgiveness is a choice that you make to honor God because He has forgiven you of your sins.

If you have a difficult time forgiving someone, decide if it’s something that you’re willing to obey God in. Commit to obey. Choose to forgive because God forgives you of your sin. It will set your heart free to receive God’s forgiveness and not let that other person’s sin against you hold power over you anymore.
