Forgiveness Thursday – 490 Times? Really?

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭18:21-22‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Good morning and happy Thursday.  It’s a great time to forgive others and yourself.

F168A70A-19F2-4DAE-8BE7-6AA84DF7079DAre you having trouble forgiving someone?  Do you find yourself facing the same old aggravating stuff with that person all the times?  Have you thought to yourself, how many times do I have to put up with this mess?  When Peter asked Jesus how many times, I feel pretty certain he wasn’t expected to be told 490 times.  It makes me chuckle to think of this conversation taking place,  because I know I’d being saying “What?”.  Yet, how many BD18DBDA-E5BC-4570-908F-55091F2272CCtimes has God forgiven us?  For me it has been more than 490 times.   In fact, it’s been more that 4,900,000 times.  It’s so nice to be loved and forgiven.  It is important to treat others well, even when there is something that really aggravates you.  It is equally important to forgive yourself.

Have a wonderful day.  God bless you.

  1. Happy Thursday to you too.
    Lovely post.
    How many times do we forgive and are we forgiven? Numbers aren’t important. It needs to be done whenever it’s required, and what a load off our minds and hearts it is to forgive and be forgiven❤
