13 Bible Verses About Forgiveness

Forgiveness is an action, it'a an act of love.

We all need forgiveness.  The very reason Jesus came to earth was to bring forgiveness for our sins, and he said if we don't forgive, then he will not forgive us.  

Forgiveness is one of those topics that is not easy to talk about but parents must teach the importance of forgiveness to our kids.  Teaching our kids to keep calm and walk in love rather than getting angry at situations will help them navigate their big emotions while growing up.

Un-forgiveness causes dangerous ripple effects of destruction in your kids life.  Helping them to finding forgiveness, and learning to give forgiveness will be healing to their souls in an impactful way.
