I find it easier to forgive when I am reminded of the words, “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.”  That’s one big incentive.  I am occasionally in need of forgiveness, too, and I don’t want to leave any obstacles in the path.

That doesn’t mean it has to be the same sin.  Forgiveness is a general term, and we shouldn’t think that ours was only a small sin.  It depends on him who was offended.  I like to clear the deck and start off even again.

As for revenge, that is definitely wrong.  If you are a member of Judeo-Christian civilization, don’t even think of it.
