Forgiveness. It’s vital to your marriage and for you to experience the joy God desires for you.

How Many Times Should You Extend Forgiveness

“No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven!” Matthew 18:22 (NLT)

Seventy times seven… That’s a lot.

It’s more than you or I usually want to forgive. It’s more than we think we should have to forgive and yet Jesus says, “Seventy times seven.”

  • Seventy times seven means that whenever the incident comes to mind – extend FORGIVENESS.
  • Seventy times seven means that when you see something that reminds you of that season -extend FORGIVENESS.
  • Seventy times seven means that when those feelings of hurt, anger, disappointment surface – extend FORGIVENESS.
  • Seventy times seven means that even when they aren’t asking for forgiveness – extend FORGIVENESS.

Jesus is so clear in these words that you are to come at life with a spirit of forgiving others.

Why? Because when you choose to forgive, you choose to release bitterness, anger and pain.

In it’s place you bring love, gratitude, contentment and peace.

This is the better way to live your life.

It’s about you extending forgiveness
