Season after Pentecost (Proper 19 [24]): The Gospel Passage – Forgiveness for our fellow believers

Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.” (Matthew 18:21 – 22)

As I came to write on this passage, I needed to remind myself that Jesus is speaking about forgiving fellow believers, and not the forgiveness that believers receive from the Lord God. Remembering has been a little more of a challenge lately; my life has been pretty hectic. And to my chagrin, I realized I had forgotten to save this post the first time I wrote it. So I am having to reconstruct what I think I wrote!

About Carole Boshart

I have blog called "Pondering From the Pacific" and it is based on my reflections on the world - sometimes religious/spiritual, and sometimes not so much. Some days roll along smoothly and some days are like rocky shale. But always I cling to my faith . . . . and my sense of humor!
