Daily Inspiration

“Then Peter came and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?”
Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy times seven.”
Matthew 18:21-22
 
LOVE AND FORGIVENESS
 
  ‘I heard an interesting message on the radio from a well-known Pastor/Teacher.  I’ll paraphrase:  “You might as well get used to be forgiving because you are going to have to forgive all your life.  There is always going to be someone who will disappoint you, there will always be someone who will let you down and not meet your expectations.  Forgiving them will set you free.
 
Why do you think Jesus responded to Peter, “Not seven times, but seventy times seven?  Why the number “7”?  Could it be as the Bible continually demonstrates the number “7” as being a number of completeness, wholeness and perfection?  I believe that by forgiving you are made whole, complete and perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
 
  You cannot forgive completely until you receive the complete forgiveness of God that comes through the shed blood of Jesus on the cross.  You cannot forgive little until God forgives you much.
  Receive forgiveness from God by asking God and you will be able to add the “un” to “conditional”, being filled with His mercy, grace and love.
  Receive God’s forgiveness and you will be able to forgive all who have hurt you, rejected you, disappointed you, spurned you, persecuted you and neglected you.
  “Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13
Forgive as He forgives; then, now and always.’ DF
