You could free folks, really set them free. Far better than physical freedom, you could give spiritual freedom!

People fight over them, drink in excess over them, isolate over them, and worst – fail to grow over them. The only cure for that malady is forgiveness.
Sometimes I wonder if I am going to have a good day. Silly huh. But on those days I say to myself, “hey I am going to forgive someone today”. Wow, how could it be a bad day if I get to do that?

Mathew 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
What up with that Ascension deal?
When I fight with my wife I always giggle, because I do not care about what she pretends to care about.
Most the things that upset us are really not all that important. I think that usually we just get caught up in things because of our pride. Many things are important. Forgiveness of the little things frees us up to be our best on the important stuff.
