Bible Verses About Forgiving

In the world we live in today, even in the church, forgiveness is often an overlooked virtue. It's easy to hold onto grudges, nurse old wounds, and let bitterness fester within us. However, as Christians, we are called to a higher standard, exemplified by Christ, forgiveness.

The Bible speaks on the topic of forgiveness. It emphasizes the importance of forgiving others, and in this blog post, we'll look at several bible verses about forgiving those who have hurt or harmed us.
