When we forgive others, God will also forgive us for our own sins. We have to live in peace with others, for this is the will of God for us. As we forgive others, He allows His grace to rest upon us and heal us from all our diseases.
Make a decision today to live a healthy and peaceful life by forgiving those who have hurt you.
