Forgiveness is a Gift

By Linda Tancs

You’ve no doubt heard it said that forgiveness is a gift you give yourself. It might sound like a cliché, but it’s grounded in the Bible. In fact, God Himself said that He blots out our sins for His “own sake” (Isaiah 43:25). Imagine that! Even God forgives sin for His own sake, for His own welfare. Forgive others for your own sake. If God can do it, then so can you.
