Recently I preached on forgiveness inside the body of Christ. One of the things I really wanted to talk about, but didn’t have enough time, was one of the reasons why we forgive others. “Why” is an important question. It’s how we learn. If you have kids you remember the “why” stage. Why this, why that. Why, why, why. One reason we forgive is because God requires it of us (see my sermon from May 15, 2016). But that isn’t the only reason we forgive. We also forgive because we are imitators of God.
