Matthew 6:12 (NIV): "Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors."
As Christians, we have been called to a life that purposefully and readily receives the love of God, and then purposefully and readily extends it to others. That means forgiving and letting go of the things they may have done to offend or disappoint us. As long as we brood on an injustice done, there is no hope that we will ever be able to rid ourselves of the bitterness unforgiveness causes. Which is so important for two main reasons: firstly, it's medically proven that bitterness causes an imbalance of our hormones that releases a toxic chemical into our blood stream. In other words, bitterness makes our bodies sick. Secondly, Jesus made it abundantly clear that if we refuse to forgive and let go of our offences, we will cut ourselves off from receiving His grace and forgiveness (Matthew 6:15). No offence is worth holding onto where your salvation is concerned. Today, choose to forgive - your life depends on it.
