Why should we forgive others?

Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. God forgives us for our sins and shortcomings. Imagine that! No matter what we have done God is willing to forgive us. Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. copywrite@mylot/His_chariot Do we honestly deserve forgiveness? Maybe that is what we should consider when we are having un-forgiveness in our hearts. Luke 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: These are a couple of consequences to un-forgiveness. When some one sins against you, have you not sinned against others.? Romans 3: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; I know my self I have committed plenty of sins, I wouldn't want to risk my chance of eternal life on account of un-forgiveness. Would you? Are they really worth all that? Hell and damnation is kind of scary, to me anyway. How about you, you don't fear eternal hell and damnation? In my opinion, it's all about appeasing God the Father. Derteronomy 29:18-21 so that there will not be among you a man or woman, or family or tribe, whose heart turns away today from the LORD our God, to go and serve the gods of those nation, that there will not be among you a root bearing poisonous fruit and wormwood. "It shall be when he hears the words of this curse, that he will boast, saying, 'I have peace through I walk in the stubbornness of my heart in order to destroy the watered land with the dry." "The LORD shall never be willing to forgive him, but rather the anger of the LORD and His jealousy will burn against that man, and every curse which is written in this book will rest on him, and the LORD will blot out his name from under heaven. "Then the LORD will single him out for adversity from all the tribes of Isreal, according to all the curses of the covenant which are written in this book of the law. Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Would you be willing to sacrifice your own life for your friends or family members? John 3:16 For God, so loved, the world, that, his Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him, should not perish, but have eternal life. I don't really know to many that would be willing to die such a horrendous death on my behalf. Do you? copyrite@mylot/His_chariot 12/2016

Forgive, doesn't not mean we have to continue in unhealthy relationships. In time I hope you can. Not necessarily for him, but for yourself. To receive peace.

No I don't. Very good study. I do not fear Hell and Damnation because my salvation is secure.

We need to forgive others if we want to be forgiven.

That's right. Not always the case with the perpetrator, but forgiveness from above is more important.
