Forgiving is the Key to Being Forgiven

Jesus’ words in Matthew 6 were very clear. As we forgive others, we will be forgiven. So if we harbor unforgiveness, we put ourselves in harm’s way and put ourselves in bondage to our own sins. Pride is the culprit, yet again. Ego says they don’t deserve forgiveness. Even if that is true, when you make that judgment, you doom yourself to not bring forgiven by God, so they win twice- one by the offense and once by your pride keeping you from forgiving them. So forgive and they only hurt you once, you are forgiven your sins, and God will deal with them later. “Vengeance is mine, says the Lord, I will repay.” Trust that and forgive. Let it go and you will have obeyed God, which brings blessings. It is freeing and feels great when you dump that baggage. And then you can be forgiven and closer to the Lord. Beautiful!😄❤
