"The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger, and his glory is to overlook a transgression." - Proverb 19 V11

"And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." - Matthew 6 V12

Our Father in heaven is rich in mercy and He forgives all who come to Him with true repentance. We ought to forgive our debtors too, otherwise how can we expect God to forgive us when we are not willing to forgive someone who have hurt us. Even Jesus while dying on the cross prayed for the forgiveness of those who were trying to kill Him. Follow the example of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and forgive those who have sinned against you.

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
