Forgiveness...how do you do it? How can we find the way to forgive when we've been hurt so badly? How can we find a way to forgive when we've been scarred, damaged by someone? And how can we find a way to forgive when someone commits a heinous or unspeakable crime against us. And how do we keep on forgiving if the person continues to hurt us? These are not only tough questions but they are important questions for all of us as Christians to consider.
This week we will continue our journey through the Gospel of Matthew, by looking at the subject of forgiveness. In this passage, Peter comes to Jesus and asks the question, "How many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" Peter was not only asking the question, he was also saying what he thought was a generous gesture to forgive someone not just once or twice, but up to seven times. Jesus answers Peter, "Not seven times, but seventy-seven times."
Join us this week as we delve deeper into this subject by the power of the Holy Spirit.
