Forgive
verb -
stop feeling angry or resentful toward (someone) for an offense, flaw, or mistake.

Greek Aphiemi (to let go and keep no longer)

For Kids

Forgive means to let go and not hang onto something any longer. Today is a day of opportunity to forgive someone.  Jesus continually taught that we need to be people who continually love and forgive. We need to remind ourselves that God has forgiven us so great a debt, and we should return that same kind of love to everyone, and do the most we can to show them that we completely love them and have nothing holding us back. Ask God today to give you a heart that easily embraces, that loves to go to people and bring peace and restoration and love. Ask God to help you right now make the best use of your words and your actions when you see or associate with sinful people.
