Please help me to forgive

Matthew 18:33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
God, I know that I have been forgiven for a great deal. I fully deserve Hell, but in your great love, you have forgiven me. You paid my debt. I am so grateful to you.
I thank you that my past has been replaced with your past. I am grateful that you have made me a new creature, and all things are changed about my past, present, and future. I have not got words to thank you for all that you have done.
Now the purpose of this devotional thought is that I would learn to be as kind and gracious as possible. I want to be like you. I want to forgive others as you have forgiven me. I do not want to take what you have given and live like I am someone important.
God, today, I ask you to help me love and forgive all as you have done to and for me. I ask that your love be shed abroad in my heart.
