Bible Verse OTD: Forgiveness

Galatians 6:1-2 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. (attitude: approach gently and stand ready to restore the relationship)

Ephesians 4:31-32 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.(attitude: loving and forgiving just like God forgave you)

“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.” 
― C.S. Lewis

 “Man has two great spiritual needs. One is for forgiveness. The other is for goodness.”  ~ Billy Graham 

“Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude.” 
― Martin Luther King Jr.

I really like your Forgive picture with the chains - it's too perfect to really stress how chained down and heavy you are without forgiving. I'd love to use the picture in my blog post, too, and give photo credit where it's due...Where'd you get it?
