What Jesus Had to Say About Forgiveness
"But what about really bad repeat offenders?" Peter asked. "What
if someone keeps doing wrong?" Is it our job to keep forgiving
"Yes," Jesus said plainly.
"But how many times, Lord?" Peter seemed exasperated. "Shall I
keep forgiving, even up to seven times?"
Jesus answered, "Not just seven times, but seventy times seven
times! If people are truly trying to repent each time and change
their lives, then you should forgive them, and work with them
until they accomplish their goal."
(From The Children's Bible, Day by Day, 2005)
