Start writing a post

forgive: to stop feeling angry or resentful towards someone for an offense, flaw, or mistake.

EVERY TIME

7. Matthew 26: 28

"for this is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many."

8. Psalms 130:4

"But you offer forgiveness, that we might learn to fear you."

9. Luke 17:4

"Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive."

10. Luke 1:77 

"You will tell his people how to find salvation through forgiveness of their sins."

11. Mark 11:25

"But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too."

12. Luke 11: 4
