Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.
Matthew 18:21, 22 ESV
Touch my heart to forgive. May my heart forgive as many times as I would want to be forgiven. Let me see past the hurt, anger, and pain that my loved one may cause. Let me learn to quickly forgive my neighbors, debtors, and trespassers. Let me not hold on to grudges. I want to be better Lord. Amen.
Jesus didn’t say forgive three times or seven times, but 70 times 7—that’s 490 times. Can you fathom that? Can you imagine forgiving someone for harming you 490 separate times? Jesus says that we must forgive. Honestly look within and check where you are right now in your life and walk. Share your thoughts.
