Conditional forgiveness

What other blessing surpasses that of forgiveness? Yet, if we do not forgive others, how can we expect the Lord to forgive us?
Jesus said, “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses” (Matthew 6:14–15).
The answer to our question is that the Lord will not forgive us, if we cannot forgive those who have sinned against us and sought forgiveness from us.
