He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass

He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass!
- Scott Nicholson

” Who is without sin cast the first stone”
-Jesus from Nazareth

“So shall ye say to Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren,
and their sin; for they did to thee evil: and now, we pray thee,
forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father.
And Joseph wept when they spoke to him.” (Ge 50:1)

“Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith to him, I say not to thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.” (Mt 18:21-22)

“And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” (Mt 6:12)
“For, if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:” (Mt 6:14)

Jehovah give me the strength to overcome my bad feelings and let me be forgiving to others.
So whenever I stand up to pray, that I first forgive anyone who has harmed me.

For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in loving kindness unto all them that call upon you.
Then hear you in heaven your dwelling-place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart you know; for you, even you only, know the hearts of all the children of men.
