The power to forgive is part of the nature and essence of God, and when you exercise it, you rise above the limitations of your human nature.

Choosing to forgive another is one of the hardest things most people ever do, especially if it’s undeserved. Human nature cries out for revenge and retribution, or at least compensation. But I came to bring forgiveness and salvation from sin. As you take on My nature, one of its traits is a readiness to forgive others. Whether the person who wronged you deserves forgiveness is not the central issue. The central issue is you doing the right thing in extending the same mercy and forgiveness I extend to you.

Forgive others who have wronged you, even as your heavenly Father forgives you.
