Colossians 3:13 NLT Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.

Forgiveness is a big part of being a Christian. It separates the mature believers from the immature believers. Offenses will come. How we handle ourselves after the offense will determine where we are in our walk. Will we respond by doing the exact same thing that was done to us or will we forgive them and let it go?

We’ve offended God as a human race. He chose to forgive us through the sacrifice of His Son. We’ve offended others. If we’re honest with ourselves, we hope they forgave us. It’s only right that we should forgive others after they’ve wronged us.

As we forgive others, we grow in our maturity, we become better witnesses of Jesus Christ, and we bring a positive light into the world. Let offenses go and forgive.
