Forgiveness by Sevens

October 20, 2018

1. 7 is an odd number
2. There are 7 days in a week
3. There are 7 wonders in the world
4. In the book of Genesis, God rested on the 7th day from all his work
5. The rainbow has 7 colors and the word rainbow has 7 letters
6. Even the word forgive has 7 letters and God told us to forgive the person 77 times
7. G is the 7th letter in the alphabet

This was a posted on Facebook and statement number 6 did not sound correct, so I looked it up.
Matthew 18:21-22
Then came Peter to him and said, “Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?”
Jesus saith unto him, “I say not unto thee, Until seven times; but, until seventy times seven.”
That would make 490 times. I think it would take an especially mean person to count up to 490 times that they had forgiven someone. However, I’m not sure what to think of the person that needs forgiveness that many times!
I am thankful that God loves and forgives us, but I also hope that He’s not counting. I’m pretty sure that by now I have passed the 490 mark!  John 3:16
