Forgiving

forgiveness, realoising you were the prisoner“and forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors”. ..”Our debt is what is owed to God, with our debtors owing us something that is due. What we owe God , made in His image and likeness as we are, is to live as He is and not “change like shifting shadows” James 1:17. What we owe each other is the same thing. We have all been undervalued, short-changed and overlooked. And we have all undervalued, short-changed and overlooked others. I know I am very happy to accept the forgiveness of Papa God. Forgiving others doesn’t necessarily make me happy, but it makes me free. Wikipedia defines forgiveness as “the intentional and voluntary process by which a victim undergoes a change in feelings and attitude regarding an offense.” God engaged in that intentional and voluntary process in the life, purpose and person of Jesus Christ. He has freely given to us, can we respond with anything less.
