I have shared the concept of kindness, tenderhearted, and being forgiving from Ephesians. These three things are to be added into your life, and you are to be characterized by these three qualities.
The purpose clause comes at the end of the verse. It says, “as God in Christ forgave you.” That settles it! If a loving, holy, just, God can forgive a sinner full of sin, than it is imperative that you be kind, tenderhearted, and forgiving to everyone, as God has been to you! Have you, through Jesus, received forgiveness of your sins? Then spread the wealth!
