Scripture. I must forgive others! When I refuse, it cuts me off the
stream of forgiveness that God so longs to give to me. While forgiving
others is never easy, God has not only commanded us to do it, he has
also given us his Son as an example of forgiveness. In addition, he has
promised to empower us to be able to do his will by the power of the
Holy Spirit. The real issue: Will we let go of our bitterness toward
those who have wounded us?
