Unforgiveness – hold hostages (does not set free)  Hebrews 12:15

–         (Mary Karr’s uncle sawed his house in ½)

Forgiveness “to set free’ – someone who has wronged you, taken from you, damaged you, injured you, taken advantage of you…  Even though we know we should … its like we can’t (100 reasons…)

That’s why, over and over, forgiveness is linked to two things- a blessing or a curse (motivator or consequence)  Matthew 6:14-15 (both + & – )

Living in Total Forgiveness – Un-enslaved  (Romans 6:6)
