In Matthew 18 Peter asks Jesus "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?" Jesus responds "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven." He then goes on to tell the parable of the unforgiving servant who refused to forgive even after a great debt had been forgiven of him. Even though so many of us are aware of the power and necessity of walking in forgiveness, how many times do we say with our mouth we forgive, but inside we pick up the offense and struggle to truly forgive from the heart?
