Matthew 6:14(niv) For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
It’s so hard to forgive an absent father or the predator who abused you as a child. It’s difficult to forgive the one you gave your heart to only to have them treat it like garbage. It’s hard to forgive the one who introduced you to the addiction and the one who kicked you when you were down. It was hard to forgive you. By hard I mean, it took alot and it required the life of God’s only begotten son. Yet outlandish, Jesus says, when you pray, pray this way and focuses on having forgiven others.
Forgiveness, letting go of all that you are entitled to or owed. If you do it for others, God will do it for you.
