“Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”
One day Simon Peter went to Jesus and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” (Matthew 18:21 NKJV).
Maybe Peter wanted to impress the Lord with his willingness to forgive. He probably thought Jesus would say, “Seven times! Let’s give Peter a round of applause. That is incredible! I can’t believe you with your forgiving attitude!”
But Jesus essentially said, “Seven times? I was thinking of 70 times seven.”
