Cost of Unforgivess

Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

What if we choose not to forgive? What if we continue in our hurt, bitterness and/or anger? Jesus tells us in His example of how to pray to God the Father that we are forgiven in the same way as we forgive others. Jesus is the example we are to follow. In the forgiveness area God chooses to follow our example. The timing, the way and the amount in which we forgive others is the timing, the way and the amount God will forgive us. We must really think about this as we nurse our hurts, grudges and anger. Are those feelings worth hanging on to when we realize the final cost to us?
