Forgive! Forgive! Forgive!
This word is found 182 times and forgiveness 150 times in the bible. That’s over 330xs on the subject of forgiveness. Anytime God uses a word that many times in His Word, you can bet He is serious about this priority in His kingdom.
In Matthew 18:21 Peter asks Jesus,”Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother and sister who sins against me, up to seven times ?” Jesus replied,”I tell you, not seven times, but seventy times seven times.” Gesh! That’s 490 times! Ok out of His mouth directly Jesus is telling us all to forgive each person 490 times. Why? Why is it that forgiveness is so important? Maybe it’s because God is saying, “I will forgive you as many times as you are willing to forgive those who have sinned against you.”
I know you have had unforgiveness in your heart…
