As many as seven times?

“Peter approached Jesus and asked him, ‘Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive him? As many as seven times?’ Jesus answered, ‘I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.’” (MT 18: 21-22)

We are counting many things: how much it costs, how much we need to pay, how many times we phoned someone, who didn’t answer, how many times we called children to do something… When we start counting how many times we forgive it is good to consider, that we are doing something dangerous, which could put our relationships in trouble. Those who love didn’t count mistakes, they count on Him.

“Let your countenance shine upon your servant and teach me your statutes.” (Gospel Acclamation)
