“…and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors…”
We often think that God will forgive us regardless of our own behavior, but to be forgiven, we have some work to do. God’s forgiveness is a gift from God, but like all gifts from Him, He expects us to share them with others. He gives us His love so that we may share it with the unloved; He gives us our possessions so we can help those without; and He forgives us so that we are able to forgive those who have wronged us. If we aren’t willing to share His gifts, why would He give us more? It’s unnatural to forgive those who have hurt you, but with God’s supernatural power, you can forgive the greatest of offenses.
