Maybe you're right townboy, forgiveness costs. When we forgive someone it costs us. If someone breaks something that is ours and we forgive them, WE have to carry the cost. If someone hurts us and we forgive them, we have to carry that hurt. When God forgave us, it cost Him - it cost him the life of His Son Jesus. Yes it costs, but if He has forgiven us, really don't we have to forgive others?
