Jesus our pattern
Jesus was the pattern Son. How he lived and everything He did glorified God.  He did that which only the Father wanted Him to do, unlike us, it's what I want to do, it's about pleasing ourselves, but our  desires should be to please God and to do His will.  Our lives should be based on what was accomplished on the Cross and not what we purposed for ourselves.

God wants us to do as he do, he is teaching things to us by his behavior. God forgives us all by Jesus body, then how can we insist on blaming our fellows?

It is by our own actions that He will judge us.We must forgive70x7 means you keep forgiving for as long as it takes just as Jesus forgives us time and time again.He wants us to love Him as He loves us and the only way we can cleanse ourselves of our sin is to sincerely ask the Lords forgiveness through Jesus Christ Christ Amen.

Why is it so important to God that we forgive others when they sin against us?
This is so important because when we forgive others, God also forgives us. When we believe and confess that Jesus is lord we will be saved because it is by faith that we are put right with God and it is by cofession that we are saved ''Romans 10 Vs 9-10''. Therefore Jesus commanded us that we should confess to one another and He will forgive us. Sin is the obstacle to entering into the kingdom of God. Even when Jesus was teaching about prayer ''Mathew 6 Vs 12 '' He commanded that for God to forgive us, we should forgive one another transpasses. Therefore forgiving one another is so important because it is the process of showing love and obidience to the commandments of God.

Why is it so important to God that we forgive others when they sin against us?
The Lord Jesus Christ has used a very clear story of forgiveness and this is where we can draw the reason for forgiving our felow brothers and sisters because if we forgive our brothers and sisters there misdeeds that is when we also can be forgiven by our Father in Heaven. It is important to God to forgive each other on earth since it is the count to your forgiveness in heaven.

The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant

Then Peter came and said to him, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Until seven times?"
Jesus said to him, "I don't tell you until seven times, but, until seventy times seven. Therefore the Kingdom of Heaven is like a certain king, who wanted to reconcile accounts with his servants. When he had begun to reconcile, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents. But because he couldn't pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, with his wife, his children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant therefore fell down and kneeled before him, saying, 'Lord, have patience with me, and I will repay you all!' The lord of that servant, being moved with compassion, released him, and forgave him the debt.
"But that servant went out, and found one of his fellow servants, who owed him one hundred denarii, and he grabbed him, and took him by the throat, saying, 'Pay me what you owe!'
"So his fellow servant fell down at his feet and begged him, saying, 'Have patience with me, and I will repay you!' He would not, but went and cast him into prison, until he should pay back that which was due. So when his fellow servants saw what was done, they were exceedingly sorry, and came and told to their lord all that was done. Then his lord called him in, and said to him, 'You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt, because you begged me. Shouldn't you also have had mercy on your fellow servant, even as I had mercy on you?' His lord was angry, and delivered him to the tormentors, until he should pay all that was due to him. So my heavenly Father will also do to you, if you don't each forgive your brother from your hearts for his misdeeds."

Matthew 18:21-35
