Once when teaching his disciples, Jesus addresses forgiveness.
He says when someone treats us wrongly we are to first confront (“rebuke”) them about the issue. If they apologize or acknowledge their error (“repent”), then we are to forgive them.
Although Jesus literally says we are to do this seven times, there is actually no limit to forgiveness.
What a great picture of God’s mercy towards us – endless, unconditional forgiveness!
