One of the biggest blessings of being a Christian is forgiveness. Through Christ we can have our sins wiped away, offering us a clean slate to start again. I'm so grateful that God doesn't demand that I live a perfect life, because that would be impossible. Yet sometimes I hold others to such a high standard that it's unrealistic to achieve, and I'm not always quick to forgive others when they make mistakes. Because none of us are perfect, and we're all human, we're going to make mistakes and some of them will hurt other people. It's important to forgive people that have hurt us or wronged us in some way. Not only is it important to forgive, it's actually necessary so that we too may be forgiven by Christ.
Matthew 6:14-15 14 “If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. 15 But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.
