forgiveness is hard
it makes you dig down deep and fight your selfish self
it boils the evil out and lets the good in us live
forgiveness means there has been a wrong
a splotch on your canvas
and often when you look around that's you all you see
the dirty spot against you
and forgiveness would mean that you still care about this brother or sister
and forgiveness might mean they would hurt you again...
and I've heard it said
"but I can only forgive so many times...." or "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on you"
but what does Jesus say.....
21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?”
22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times."
forgive again and again and again .....even if its the 8th time or 75th time
