Why Is It So Hard to Forgive Myself (and others)

"But God proves his love for us that while we were still sinners Christ died for us."
Romans 5:8

We know we need forgiveness, yet it can be hard to think that God will forgive us.  We think we are not worthy.  We might think that because we keep committing the same sins over and over that God will stop forgiving us.  When someone offends us over and over, we might want to stop forgiving them.  Fortunately for us, God is not like that.  What other reasons do we have to think we shouldn’t be forgiven?  Why else might we not want to forgive someone else?  .  Here are the slides and preliminary questions for this video.
