Bible Verse of the Week: Matthew 6:14-15

"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14-15
Have you had a grudge or know of a person whom you think you cannot forgive? One of the many things that God does for us is forgiving our numerous sins, and we are supposed to be imitators of Him. Obviously, we are not being like God if we do not forgive someone. Let us say that we do not forgive anyone in life; the result will be going to Heaven to find that God will not forgive us. Not only will we not be called "good and faithful servant", but we will be cast into hell's fire where we will perpetually weep and knash our teeth. Everytime we refuse to forgive someone, Satan is laughing his head off that he has pulled us down deeper and gripped us tighter. After the first time we do not forgive, it is so much easier to not forgive the next time, easily causing us to grow miserable, stubborn, and destined for hell. However, when we forgive others, what a glorious ending we will have to be forgiven by the Lord! If you have not already practiced this, you should show more mercy and grace to others.
