The Biblical principles regarding offense and forgiveness are essential to community life.  If we desire to remain in fellowship with one another then we should commit to follow the Bible's pattern for handling offense and granting forgiveness every time an offense occurs... even a minor one.

Consider the words of Paul in his letter to the believers in Colossae:

So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.  Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. "
(Colossians 3:12-14)
