“Should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, just as I had pity on you?” Matthew 18:33. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings the promise of peace and reconciliation with God and with each other. When Peter asked Jesus how often he should forgive a brother who sinned against him, the Lord surprised everyone with His answer of, “seventy times seven” (v.22). As God freely forgives us, so He requires that we extend what we have received to others. With God’s love and power, forgiveness is always possible.
