“Forgiveness is not dependent on the actions of others.”
(Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu in The Book of Forgiving)

Has God ever asked you to forgive?
Not forget…Forgive.

A family member…
A co-worker…
A stranger…
A system or an institution…
A church member or The Church…
God…
The past…
Yourself…

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone.
Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Colossians 3:13

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, ‘Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?’ Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.’
Matthew 18:21-22

You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you. Psalm 86:5

Father, forgive them…Luke 23:34
