God called us for His purpose, not our own. He has good things in store for us, but we need to prepare our hearts to receive them. More than any other thing we can do to prepare our hearts, we must forgive. This is the foundation of the love-walk. Without forgiveness, we walk around with wounds and bondage, we can't move forward, and we are disobedient to God's command. When we choose to forgive, we can walk free, healed, stronger, and can receive all the blessings God has laid up for us.
