Scripture: Matthew 6:15 "But if you don't forgive people, your Father will not forgive your wrongdoing."
Exhortation: We can never walk with and grow in Christ the way the Lord desires if we harbor unforgiveness, bitterness or hate towards anyone. Others may have hurt us deeply and God knows that. Vengeance is His not ours. When we forgive, we are able to enjoy unhindered fellowship with the Lord. By forgiving others, we allow the Lord to settle the score on our behalf.
Prayer: Think of the person who has wronged you and ask for grace to forgive him/her. Start to pray for them and bless them. When Job prayed for his friends that wronged him, God restored him (Job 42:10).
