Bible Verses About Forgiveness

Sometimes forgiving someone who hurt us is the last thing we want to do. God commands us to forgive others, just as He has forgiven us of our sins! It is our responsibility as Christians to love others as Christ loves us and to offer forgiveness to those who offend. Spend time talking to God about your pain and disappointment and seek His guidance in restoring relationships.
