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  

and 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)
