The Thing About Forgiveness

Post by Pastor Dave

Matthew 18:21-35


“Jesus, how often must I forgive my brother?”

Inquiring minds want to know.

Peter wants to know.

And so do we.

When it comes to forgiveness, how much is enough?


7 times?

70 times 7?

“Nope”, Jesus says.

10,000 talents worth.

It took 15 years to pay off 1 talent.

And Jesus wants us to forgive 10,000 talents worth?

That’s right!!



Forgiveness must be pretty important.

That’s right too.


What is the power of forgiveness?

And why is Jesus insisting we use it?
