Why Is It That We Can Easily Forgive Others When They Hurt Us But Find It So Hard Or Take Us A Long Time To Forgive Our Partners When They Do The Same? I’m Also Guilty Of This But God Has Greatly Helped Me On This. Now, Even If They Offend Us A Hundred Times A Day, We Must Forgive Them A Hundred Times Too.
Matt.18:21-22 – “…Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? up to seven times? Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.”

1Pet.4:8 – “above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins”
If We Choose To Withhold Forgiveness From Our Partners And Others, We Have Chosen To Withhold God’s Forgiveness For Our Sins. Jesus Taught Is In The “Lord’s Prayer” That God Will Forgive Us As We Forgive Those That Has Sinned Against Us.
Matt.6:14-15 – “In prayer, there’s a connection between what God does and what you do. You can’t get forgiveness from God for instance, without also forgiving others. If you refuse to do your part, you cut yourself off from God’s part.”(MSG)
