"Don't Forgive"

"For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:  But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses".  Matthew 6:14,15

There are many who are reading this that have unforgiveness in your heart against someone else.  You just won't let it go.  There are many reason why people hold on to unforgiveness.  The reasons are endless.  Someone abused you or misused you.  Somebody took advantage of you or your generosity.  Someone you confided in let you down.  Someone who was suppose to be there for you wasn't.  Someone you loved betrayed you.  The list goes on.

If truth be known, while we are holding on to unforgiveness toward someone else, we may not be guiltless ourselves.  We have all said and done things to hurt someone else.  We have all been an instrument at some point in time that caused hurt, pain or heartache to someone else.  Therefore, we should get the "log out of our own eye" when it comes to not wanting to forgive someone else.

The bottom line concerning unforgiveness is this-- you may have a legitimate reason for feeling the way you do.  Whoever you are holding unforgiveness against may actually be guilty.  Whoever it is may not deserve your forgiveness.  But that is all besides the point.  The point is:  you and I need forgiveness-- the forgiveness of God.  We need Him to forgive our trespasses.  If He does not we are eternally lost.  Unforgiveness is not a luxury nor an option.  It is a must if we are going to be forgiven by the Heavenly Father.  If God's forgiveness means nothing to you, then go ahead and continue to walk in unforgiveness because He won't give it to you if you do.

Have a great day.  If you don't forgive others, the Lord will not forgive you.
