How Much Forgiveness is Enough?
|"Sea, Rocks & Sunset" by Bryan Hudson|
Peter wanted to know how much forgiveness was enough. Perhaps he was fed up with a situation concerning someone or just wanted peace of mind.
Have you even felt conflicted or burdened concerning something others have done against you? Peter suggested that forgiving someone seven times was enough. Jesus multiplied the number 7 times 70, to equal 490 instances of forgiveness!
Basically Jesus said that forgiveness must be unlimited. Forgiveness does not excuse the transgressions of others. God holds everyone responsible for their own deeds.
Deep forgiveness clears your own heart and mind so that you can move towards God's best in your life.
