70 x 7 

Keep forgiving. All the time. When Jesus gave the instruction to forgive 70×7, the idea was not a specific number of times we need to forgive (some texts state: “77 times”). It was to be a limitless, ongoing attitude and practice of forgiveness.

There needs to be a clear recognition that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom 3:23) 

And I must acknowledge that I am the “chief” of those sinners. Once I acknowledge that I am greatly in need of forgiveness as everyone else, the playing field levels off, and I am more free to forgive. 

Arrogance and pride need to give way to 70×7.
