Christ Unabashedly used the word ‘Forgive’ an Astonishing 6 times in a mere 3 verses, that too, near Consecutive ones. Matthew 6:12,14-15. As under:
“12 Forgive us the wrongs we have done, as we Forgive the wrongs that others have done to us. …14 If You Forgive others the wrongs they have done to You, Your Father in heaven will also Forgive You. 15 But if You do not Forgive others, then Your Father will not Forgive the wrongs You have done.” (TEV).
That’s How Important Forgiveness Is!
