It is so easy to remember when someone hurts or offends us and to hold a grudge. Forgiveness is something we do not want to have any part of when the trespass is against us. The christian belief is that we will one day have to stand in judgment for what we either did or did not do during our lifetime. A lot of us forget or ignore the fact that the forgiveness of others is required t if we want our own offenses against" Him" to be forgiven. Reciting the Lord's Prayer will jolt the memory of any absentminded or backsliding member of the body of Christ concerning this fact. Even on the cross, He asked God to "Forgive them, for they know not what they do". If you still find it difficult to forgive someone after knowing this, just remember, when its your time to justify your reason for not doing so, He will raise His nail scarred hand and exclaim "No Excuses".
