"Do not say, "I will do to him just as he has done to me; I will render to the man according to his work." " - Proverbs 24 V29

"For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." - Matthew 6 V14-15

Forgiveness is not a nice to follow Christian quality but it is a command from our Father in heaven. It is so important that it is part of the prayer our Lord taught us. Even on the cross before our Lord died, He prayed for those who were killing Him and He asked the Father to forgive them. Unforgiveness is a bigger burden for someone to carry. When our Father has forgiven us, ought not we do the same to others. It may not be easy to forgive others but it is important for us to obey the Lord and forgive for sake of the command He gave us.

Praise God!

"And behold, I am comi5ng quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
