While the most important forgiveness is the forgiveness we receive from God, we are also called upon to seek and grant forgiveness from one another.

The story of Joseph illustrates biblical principles of forgiveness.

1. We must seek forgiveness (quickly and thoroughly) when we wrong others.
2. We must grant forgiveness when others ask us.
3. Joseph teaches how we are able to forgive others (even when it is hard).
