God Bless you Connie Keyohara for blessing us once again today! PTL!
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-seven times. Matthew 18:21-22
You’ve heard that Not forgiving someone is the equivalent of staying trapped in a jail cell of bitterness, serving time for someone else’s crime.
Forgiveness is actually for us, for our own peace of mind and sanity.
When you Forgive you’re happier and healthier because you’re not focused on past hurts but on future blessings. People that forgive will tend to have better relationships because they’re not carrying around the bitterness.
Harboring unforgiveness or bitterness, is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.
You see, God showed us grace and mercy for our iniquities, he’s forgiven and restored us. We should follow his example.
And remember that 70×7 is boundless perfection!
Because He Lives,
