    Matthew 5:44 But I tell you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your father in heaven. (NIV)

    The word "forgive" is composed of two words, the word "for" and the word "give." In our daily life, we can be for "giving" or we can be for "taking." When we are for "giving" and we actually give, then we always receive back the multitude of blessings those persons who always give always receive back.

    If we are always looking to take from others or take advantage of others, we receive back the result of a taking heart. Run rampant, the person with a taking heart ends up in prison or on the run from the law. Run rampant, the person with a giving heart eventually comes to the arms of Christ.

    What you send out surely does come back. When you send out with a giving heart, you receive back multiples of what you have given. When you send out with a taking heart, what you have is taken from you and you live in loneliness, pain, and suffering.
