Mt 18:21—19:1

Peter, the disciples’ spokesperson, wants to know how many times they are to forgive the offenses of others. Perhaps he feels the number he offers is generous but Jesus’s correction points to that fact that as God’s mercy cannot be limited or restricted nor should theirs. Jesus illustrates this point with a parable.

I find myself denying forgiveness to others because I feel they are not deserving. I forget willingness to forgive is as much for me as for the one who has offended me.
