Some Thoughts on Forgiveness

     Do you forgive someone so that your unforgiveness won't cause you problems, or do you forgive to follow in His steps, because you have realized the depths of depravity of your own sins, that He died and forgave you for? Did you mourn over your own sinfulness when you accepted Christ? Have you realized what your own sin has been before holding others in unforgiveness? Was their sin against you greater than yours against God? Will you pass on the gift of grace He gave to you? Can there be such a thing as self-centered forgiveness instead of forgiveness out of a heart that's been cleansed by His? Is the first kind genuine, or is it contrived, only seeking it's own relief?
