Freedom in Forgiveness By: C.C.
“Lord, if my brother sins against me, often must I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus answered, “I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.”Every now and then there are Gospel verses that pop up and truly cut to the heart of what it means to be a follower of Christ. We are given and presented with a lofty challenge of sorts demanding deep inner work and clinging to Christ. We are reminded in today’s Gospel of the very difficult and necessary reality of forgiveness. This work is as ongoing as conversion should be. It is impossible without great love of God.
