i. Forgiving others is a command not a choice.

To forgive means to let go of an offence, to pardon, to waive any negative feeling or desire for punishment, to acquit the accused of a crime and Set him/her at liberty without pressing any claim Matthew 18:25-27. Living a forgiven is God’s expectation of all His children so as to receive forgiveness from Him. We all need to regularly ask God in prayer to give us the spirit of forgiveness.
