Forgive and forget – Why not forgive people who repent and give them another chance to do good? Repentance means to change. Forgiveness means you get another chance to be good. Your not the only one who deserves it, but why should you be forgiven, if you are not willing to forgive? Or have you forgotten all of the bad stuff you have ever done? That is why when Jesus said, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”, everyone walked away.
