Read the following question: How does the lack of forgiveness affect the one who has done harm, the one who has been harmed, and each person’s relationship with God?

If you read that question a couple of times, you could probably take it apart and answer it piece by piece. But if you only heard it, you’d have forgotten the first part by the time you heard the last. It’s best to ask just one simple question and wait for responses before asking the next piece.[1]
