The peace that comes from forgiveness
When we forgive, we give the other person freedom, just as God gives us freedom from shame and the guilt of our own sins. Some people want God to forgive them but are not willing to forgive those who may have wronged them. Forgiveness is a two way street. When we do not practice forgiveness in our lives, we will not live in peace with God, ourselves and those who have wronged us. Forgive to be forgiven.
4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us
