UNFORGIVENESS is an act of vengeance and the key to psychological self-imprisonment behind steel bars where your bones begin to dry up, your flesh begins to rot and your mental state decays while those you refuse to forgive walk and live freely without giving a single thought to your self-imposed plight of self annihilation.
UNFORGIVENESS stops God from taking action on your behalf.
“Avenge not yourselves, beloved, but give place unto the wrath [of God]: for it is written, Vengeance belongs unto me; I will recompense, says the Lord.” (Rom. 12:19)
UNFORGIVENESS stops God from forgiving you.
“For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” (Matt. 6:14,15)
“Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:” (Luke 6:37)
THEREFORE, forgive, and let God decide whether or not those you forgive should trade places with you in prison.
