Here’s one definition of forgiveness:
Forgiveness is the intentional and voluntary process by which a victim undergoes a change in feelings and attitude regarding an offense, lets go of negative emotions such as vengefulness, with an increased ability to wish the offender well.
In the Christian life, this is so very important. The Lord’s prayer is a strong reminder that we will be forgiven to the degree we forgive those who have offended us. We can speak from personal experience that to forgive others – especially those who have seriously wronged you – from your heart is like receiving a blood transfusion. Forgiveness = Life.
