And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:  15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 6:12-15

How can I walk in intimacy with God who forgives me and continues to forgive me, and refuse to forgive others? How can I ask God to be gracious to me again and again and not give that same grace to others? God forgives and forgets, and forgives and forgets, and forgives and forgets on and on and on and I am expected to do the same. I hinder my own relationship with God when I refuse to do for others what God has done for me.
