Proverbs 18:19 An offended brother is more unyielding than a fortified city, and disputes are like the barred gates of a citadel

We see that hurt feelings between physical brothers and between close friends are much harder to overcome than to go to war and take a city. They won’t forget it. They have their guard up to any reconciliation you try to make.

There are no feuds as difficult to resolve as those with relatives; no barriers are so hard to bring down. Hence, great care should be taken to avoid such conflicts.

The Bible says that if we expect to be forgiven of God, we must forgive our brother. In fact, we are to forgive them as many times as they ask us. Over and over again, the Bible says 70 times 7. If your brother asks you to forgive, you must forgive.
