This is perhaps the most devastating result of Unforgiveness. We all want forgiveness for ourselves. The issue is that when we are not willing to extend forgiveness to others, GOD will not extend forgiveness to us! I can think of nothing worse.
Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
The Amplified Bible Translation makes it even more clear: ‘But if you do not forgive others their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], neither will your Father forgive you your trespasses.’
