“To err is human, to forgive is divine”. Think about the veracity of this quote from the English poet Alexander Pope who penned these words in 1711 in, An Essay on Criticism. It has become a proverbial phrase used often to reflect the human tendency to sin and the divine character to forgive. In other words, human beings commit sins and make mistakes. God forgives us, and we are acting in a Godlike (divine) way when we forgive.
