Forgiveness is something very important in our lives, why is it important? Because it is a command of our Lord Jesus Christ to forgive our brothers, so that God can forgive us.
So even if we have people who misbehave, we must forgive them for their faults. That is why we will quote two verses which tell us about forgiveness:
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
Ephesians 4:32 (KJV)
Something very important that we can observe in the previous verse is that it says that just as we forgive each other, God will also forgive us. This verse speaks clearly to us about forgiveness, so we must accept forgiveness and forgive, since if we don’t, God will not forgive our faults.
In Matthew we can also find teachings on forgiveness:
For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
Matthew 6:14 (KJV)
Thus, as we forgive, our God will also forgive us, our God is righteous and practices justice. So let us act with mercy so that God also offers us His mercy, let us be kind as the Father is, and everything will be different in our lives.
