Seeds of Truth: Ephesians 4:32

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other,
just as in Christ God forgave you.

How do you forgive someone when they hurt you? When was a time when it was difficult to forgive? How did you learn to forgive anyway? How did unforgiveness hurt a relationship? How did forgiveness restore a relationship? What role does the forgiveness of Christ play in the way you forgive others?
