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. Mat 6:14-15 (Click gold Scripture references for Principle Interrelations)
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Lk 6:37 Instead of thinking " your no good, you ought to be condemned", think "I forgive you".Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account [settle accounts with WU] of his servants. And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to [because he couldn't] pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped [kneeled before] him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed [released] him, and forgave him the debt. But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence [one sixtieth of a talent WU]: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that [what] thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst [begged] me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth [angry], and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto [each of WU] you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses [if you don't each forgive your brother from your hearts for his misdeeds]. Mat 18:21-35. Have mercy on him and "forgive your brother from your heart"; otherwise we will pay the penalty for our sins against God.
Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass [sins] against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him. Lk 17:3-4And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Mat 6:12
