Why is it important to forgive?

Why is it important to forgive those who harm us, offend us and deceive us in different manners? It is one of the most difficult task for human nature to forgive the enemies and to those who betray us, yet we must obey the instructions of Bible that asks us to do so no matter what. Forgiveness is one of the most important commandments God has asked us to fulfill. It seems ridiculous to imagine forgiving those who hurt us but this is what God wants us to do, no matter how difficult it is and no matter how ridiculous it seems. Today Pastor Samuel R. Garza the co-pastor from the International Church Madrid is going to teach us why it is important to forgive.
