Have you been hurt by someone?
First, why? Why should I forgive someone who hurt me?
#1 Unforgiveness Hurts You
Hebrews 12:15 (NLT)
Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.
#2 I Will Need Forgiveness Again
Matthew 6:14-15 (NLT)
“If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. 15 But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.
#4 Forgive as You’ve Been Forgiven
Colossians 3:13 (NLT)
Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
The Point: The forgiven forgive others.
