For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. ( Matthew 6:12, 14-15)
Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. (Luke 17:3)
I've been thinking alot lately about my being able to forgive as a Christian.These passages are giving me conflicting feelings on forgiveness. One is saying my forgiveness should be conditional and the other says I must forgive to be forgiven.
There are some things I would like to forgive people for but I'm having a hard time finding the strength to. I've been struggling with this for years and I'm hoping God will help me find some clarity on this soon.
