Spiritual prayer to the Lord: Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us

Spiritual prayer to the Lord: Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. Spiritual prayer to the Lord: Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.

Jesus taught us how to pray to the father:
"Father,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.
And lead us not into temptation" Luke 11:2-4.
And part of this spiritual prayer to the Lord tells us about forgiving and being forgiven. And this is very important, because we must ask God for what we give to our neighbor: "Because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful" James 2:13; and also: "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven" Luke 6:37. This is basically a principle of reciprocity or justice.
God never seeks to punish us but to guide us kindly towards his eternal wisdom, that is why the Lord judges us as we judge those who need us, the Lord is always willing to forgive us but first we have to understand the importance of his value. Forgiving is not only necessary to get rid of resentment, but also to be blessed by the creator, because nobody is perfect and we are all exposed to the error.
Forgiveness helps our neighbor and helps us, but forgiveness requires something, he who hates cannot forgive, only when we understand from the heart the destructive nature of sin and feel aversion to error, is when we can reflect and forgive. An example of this is the father who forgives the prodigal son, when he seeks refuge in his family's house after wasting his fortune (Luke 15:11-32).
The Kingdom of God is growth, and development towards that spiritual objective that is the resemblance to God in essence: "Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect" Matthew 5:48. And what better to achieve this than to practice gratuity and forgiveness: "If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ´I repent,´ you must forgive them." Luke 17:3-4.
