It’s incredibly difficult to do. But it’s never optional. When someone has offended us, the temptation to not forgive is great. But the roots of unforgiveness and bitterness can grow deep in the human soul. Left alone, unforgiveness produces bitter fruit that shows itself in angry thoughts, words, and deeds. Eventually, it will destroy us from the inside out. Through this study, you will learn of the life-altering, rich teachings God’s Word offers about forgiveness. Your heart will soften as you learn of Jesus’ forgiveness for you, and you’ll be encouraged to extend that same forgiveness to others.” _______ Cost is $14 for the Workbook
