How often should we forgive?

Then Peter came to him and said, “Lord how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him?

Matthew 18:21.

How many times we should forgive someone is something that troubled Peter and each of us wrestles with as well. Jesus answered Peter and us, through a parable. (Matt.18:22-35).

The lesson is that, those who’ve received great forgiveness should also extend forgiveness. We received great forgiveness at the cross. Our sin was forgiven at the personal expense of Jesus.

When we recognize this, when we see the great forgiveness God has poured out for us, it enables us to extend forgiveness to others. We shouldn’t draw the line.

Let’s focus on the cross as God’s unconditional standard for forgiveness. He didn’t draw the line when we wronged him, and we’ve no right to draw any lines when others wrong us. Amen.

God bless abundantly!
