Forgiveness: How Many Times?

August 31, 2014

Pastor Paul is preaching.
Matthew 18:21-35


There are few things more difficult in life than extending forgiveness to those who have wounded us.  

Of course, God never said it would be easy.  And His desire is not that we continue to place ourselves in a situation to be hurt.  But He does, without question, call us to forgive.  Do I really have to forgive no matter what?  How many times does He expect me to forgive those who continually hurt me?  If you’ve asked these questions before, you’re in good company because the disciple Peter did as well.  Perhaps Jesus’ response in Matthew 18 will provide some clarity to this difficult subject.
