Letter of Commendation for Extending Forgiveness

Dear

I wanted to take a moment to send you this note to commend you on your recent decision to extend forgiveness to (NAME). I have no doubt this was difficult to do, yet I also have no doubt that nothing could express the heart of Christ more than sharing forgiveness such as you have.

The story is told in Spain of a father and his teenage son who had a relationship that had become strained. So the son ran away from home. His father, however, began a journey in search of his rebellious son. Finally, in Madrid, in a last desperate effort to find him, the father put an ad in the newspaper. The ad read: “Dear Paco, meet me in front of the newspaper office at noon. All is forgiven. I love you. Your father.” The next day at noon in front of the newspaper office 800 “Pacos” showed up. They were all seeking forgiveness and love from their fathers.

Somehow, we as Christians read the Word of God and overlook some of the most important passages such as Matthew 6:14-15 (NIV)
14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

How many times do we need to be forgiven by God? If you’re like me, it has been quite often over the years that I have come to Him for forgiveness. A scripture passage like we read above clearly indicates that our forgiveness by God hinges upon the kind of forgiving spirit we have shared with others! This is not something to take lightly and you have expressed this so beautifully.

I know that what you have done will be a wonderful example to not only your family but also fellow believers in Christ who endeavor to live more like Him every day.

Again, thank you for your inspiration and example of forgiveness as God would have you forgive.

In Christ,

Pastor John Doe
