Forgiveness

Matthew 6:14-15, “For ifyou forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

To forgive
is to live

To withhold
Is to turn cold

How calloused our hearts become
When we hold ought against someone

We cannot forgive and forget
Instead we just uncover it

Our wounds run deep
Our hearts just seep

It spews the hurt, the hate within
Until to us, it becomes our sin

The remedy is found in Christ our Lord
To forgive others and harbor no more

We must release the past
We must do it fast

Before our own soul
Becomes more like a black hole

To forgive
is to live

Showing Mercy brings grace
To show mercy is the only way
