Matthew 18:21-22

21 Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.

 Remember Matthew 6:14-15:   14For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; 15but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

 As we pray, we should ask our Heavenly Father to guide us to remember those whom we may not have forgiven, to be empathetic to their situation, and to treat them with an extra portion of graciousness and kindness as we encounter them in our communities, church, and beyond.
