Just thinking: When you FORGIVE, honestly it is not for the other PERSON?
Here is what I mean: UNFORGIVENESS
* spiritually you are SEPARATED from God – He won’t forgive you and won’t take your worship offering (basically anything your present Him).
* emotionally you are drained, angry, unstable, depressed and irritating.
– your immune system is repressed
– your heart beats faster, pressure rises, pumps and more blood
– your endocrine system goes haywire – the hormones constrict your vessels, release less growth hormone and produce fewer sex hormones.
– your lungs/breathing is faster, consumes more energy and expel more carbon dioxide
– you sweat more
– your pancreas pumps out glucagon, produce less insulin and your blood sugar level rises.
So, when God says FORGIVE, He actually commanded it for your SAKE.
