Hello my beloveds,
I want to apologize for the not so great recording of this devotional but I was using a different sound system that I wasn't to fond of. Will go back to the one I had before. Plus I had a little bit of an allergy sniffle that didn't help. So again, apologies for the poor recording.
Here are the scriptures on the subject of forgiveness, may they help you understand a little more to why it's important for you to do that internal cleansing in your heart so that you can draw Him (God) a little closer so that His Spirit can help you with the ability to forgive others. God bless you with healed hearts.
"No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more." ~Jeremiah 31:34
The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger, and his glory is to overlook a transgression.

"And forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us." ~Luke 11:4

~Matthew 26:28 (Jesus died and shed His blood for you and I, so our sins could be forgiven)
Not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving blessings instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing. ~1 Peter 3:9
