Doing My Part
It is impossible for me to forgive other people for their wrongs without knowing that I am forgiven for mine. Asking God to forgive my many, cumulative tresspasses (debts, sins, character defects) in the Lord's Prayer and in my other prayers gives me a sense of hope and awareness that I am forgiven. When I read scripture, I am told that I must also forgive for God to be pleased with me. It is expected. It is difficult. It is my part that I must do, and I can't do it without God's help and guidance. It gives me hope to know that with God's help, I can do what I cannot do without it.
