Peter came to Jesus with a question: “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?”

Here’s how Jesus replied:

Great Forgiveness, Great Love

A Pharisee invited Jesus to dinner. They were joined by an unexpected “guest”:

A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.

We’re taking a deeeeep dive into the model prayer Jesus gave his followers:

Forgiveness Friday

Think Jesus was serious about forgiveness? Here are some direct quotes straight from his lips:

Forgive, and you will be forgiven. (Luke 6:37)

For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. (Matthew 6:14-15)

“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-seven times.” (Matthew 18:21-22)

FORGIVE One Another

It’s _____ ONE ANOTHER WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’re looking at how the Bible says we should fill in that blank.

Today’s word? FORGIVE. Here’s what the Bible says about that:

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (Ephesians 4:2)

When I have trouble forgiving others, I try to remember two rather humbling stories. We’ve shared ’em before here on GUWG but I just loooooove ’em and think they’re worth repeating.
