SOTD: “7 x 70” – Chris August

Forgiveness is mandatory.

There’s no wiggle room.

Jesus said:
“But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”
(Matthew 6:15)

In fact, in the Lord’s Prayer, you may recall the phrase, “and forgive us our trespasses AS WE FORGIVE those who trespass against us.” 

God’s forgiveness of us is directly linked to the way we forgive. Scary, huh?

The truth is, not forgiving leads to bitterness, resentment, anger and maybe even hatred. Even secular psychologists will tell you, those things are TOXIC to human existence.
