Forgiveness Bible Verses(pexels)

We are just human and that make us more vulnerable to pain. Sometimes, due to the pain we feel, we forget to take time and forgive others who made mistakes against us.

In His words, God commands us to forgive others and extend our grace as we have been shown His grace and forgiveness too.

Read these Bible verses to understand why God wants us to forgive others.

Isaiah 43:25-26

"I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake and remembers your sins no more. Review the past for me, let us argue the matter together; state the case for your innocence."

Matthew 6:14-15

"For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins."

1 John 1:9

Luke 17:3-4
