How many times do we have to forgive somebody? The KJV translates it as: “Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.” But the NIV says: “Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.’”
Compare Matthew 18:21-35, to Daniel 9, to Genesis 4:24.
Meditate on whether Jesus was comparing us forgiving to: God's forgiveness of those in exile (70 x 7 years = 490 times), or to unforgiving wrongheaded revenge (70 sevenfold = 77 times).
Then consider Matthew 18:15-19 Why allow someone to sin against you 490 times? Or 77 times? Or 7 times? Wise up and stay away from that person. Forgive them then avoid them.
Invite the Holy Spirit into your being. Ask God to commune with you. Then pay attention.
