"Continue putting up with one another and forgiving one another freely if anyone has a cause for complaint against another. Even as Jehovah freely forgave you, so do you also."  (Col 3:13).

'We may, if we choose, make the worst of one another. Every one has his weak points; every one has his faults;  we may make the worst of these;  we may fix our attention constantly upon these. But we may also make the best of one another. We may forgive, even as we hope to be forgiven. We may put ourselves in the place of others, and ask what we should wish to be done to us, and thought of us, were we in their place. By loving whatever is lovable in those around us, love will flow back from them to us, and life will become a pleasure instead of a pain;  and earth will become like heaven; and we shall become not unworthy followers of Him whose name is Love.'  (A. P. Stanley).

"But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate, freely forgiving one another just as God also by Christ freely forgave you."  (Eph 4:32).

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ... By means of him we have the release by ransom through the blood of that one, yes, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His undeserved kindness."  (From Eph 1:3 & 7).

"If your brother wrongs you, reprove him;  and if he repents, forgive him. Even if he wrongs you seven times in a day and comes back to you seven times saying, "I am sorry", you are to forgive him.""  (Luke 17:3,4 NEB).

"If a certain individual has been causing pain, he has been causing pain not so much to me as to all of you     at any rate (for I am not going to overstate the case) to a section of you. This censure from the majority is severe enough for the individual in question, so that instead of censuring you should now forgive him and comfort him, in case the man is overwhelmed by excessive remorse. So I beg you to reinstate him in your love... lest  satan should take advantage of our position     for well I know His manoeuvres!"  (From 2 Cor 2:5-11 Moffatt).

"If we make the statement: "We have no sin," we are misleading ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous so as to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."  (1 John 1:8,9).

"Inquire of the Lord while He is present, call upon Him when He is close at hand. Let the wicked abandon their ways and evil men their thoughts:  let them return to the Lord, who will have pity on them, return to our God, for He will freely forgive."  (Isaiah 55:6,7 NEB).

"Happy are those whose lawless deeds have been pardoned and whose sins have been covered;  happy is the man whose sin Jehovah will by no means take into account."  (Rom 4:7,8).
