To forgive another's transgression benefits the one forgiving as much as it does the one forgiven.
This is because it relieves the one forgiving of destructive feelings of hate, revenge, and vindictiveness.
When these feelings are gone it is a great relief.
But also forgiving others gives them another chance.
When we come closer to God through study and prayer we are forgiven what we have done wrong.
So it is only fair that we should forgive others as God has forgiven us.
