DO YOU KNOW FORGIVENESS IS AN ACT OF LOVE?

Forgiveness according to the Oxford dictionary means ‘Stop feeling angry or resentful towards (someone) for an offence, flaw, or mistake;According to the Christians dictionary which is the bible, forgiveness or letting go, simply mean “forgiving as many times as you can, as long as there’s a reason to”.- Matthew 18:22-25.

Two types of forgiveness appear in the Bible:
1)God’s pardon of our sins- Psalm 103: 3, 12.

2)Our obligation to pardon others- Matthew 6:14-15.
The subject of forgiveness is so vital to our eternal destiny. Forgiveness is an act of love. To forgive is not only to pardon, but in the end to love. God’s act of love towards mankind was to send his only son as a propitiation for our sins. That is a supreme act of love, the greatest sacrifice the universe has ever witnessed. -1John 4: 9-10.
