Forgive other people when they sin against you. If you do, your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive the sins of other people, your Father will not forgive your sins.
Matthew 6:14-15 NLT
Forgiveness Matters to God. This verse doesn't say that this is something easy to do. It doesn't mean that we excuse what the person has done and give them a pass. It means that we release the feelings of resentment for a wrong that has been committed against you. According to this verse, if I want to be forgiven by my Heavenly Father, then I need to release forgiveness.
