How To Forgive Others: 10 Bible Verses On Forgiveness

How about a deep dive into some verses about forgiveness? One of the most challenging commands in scripture to adhere to is the command to forgive others. It can be hard to wrap our minds around the fact that we are supposed to forgive people who have hurt us and let us down.

Here’s the thing about forgiveness: It is not for them. It is for you. Forgiveness is a key that lets you out of a prison build on unforgiveness with walls and bars constructed of bitterness, anxiety, resentment, and bondage. 

Forgiveness does not mean the person is innocent or that what they’ve done isn’t wrong or hurtful. Forgiveness is you choosing not to remember their actions against them. Forgiveness is you deciding to move on free, whole and healed. Forgiveness is your declaration that you aren’t going to live as a victim anymore. 

Here are some excellent bible verses on forgiveness to help you on your journey.
