Matthew 18: 21-35
Peter approached Jesus and asked him, "Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive? As many as seven times?" Jesus answered, "I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.
We have all heard the maxim, "To not forgive someone is to drink poison and hope it kills the other person." To forgive is to release a prisoner. That prisoner is you. Jesus wants freedom for you and that means cultivating a life of forgiveness toward others.
