ACHIEVE GREATNESS DEVOTIONAL-YEMI DAVIDS: Seventy times Seven

ACHIEVE GREATNESS DEVOTIONAL-YEMI DAVIDS: Seventy times Seven
 
 
Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.” – Luke 17:3‭-‬4 NKJV
 
In Matthew 18, Peter asked an interesting but totally humanly question: “How many times do I have to forgive my brother?” Jesus replied seventy times seven times, which is equal to four hundred and ninety times.
 
How do you count how many times someone has hurt you? Do you get out a notepad and record every wrong and expect them to hurt you more so it reaches four hundred and ninety before you would forgive?
 
The lesson here is that we ought to keep forgiving without counting. Jesus is telling us to forgive regardless, tough though it may seem. Forgiveness doesn’t need a reason before it can happen. Of course, it is easy to forgive someone because the person is your close friend, or because you still have something to benefit from them.
But Jesus shows us true forgiveness. He forgave us all our sins without counting or taking note. He now expects that we forgive others as well without counting or taking to account wrong done to us.
 
Oh yes, It is not the easiest thing to forgive someone who has hurt you over and over again but God’s grace is enough. You can do it too; forgive and let go! There are huge destiny benefits when we choose to forgive.
 
Further reading – Matthew 18:21-35, Ephesians 4:31-32.
 
PRAYER
Dear Lord, I come to you this day because you know how hard it is to forgive. I receive grace to forgive those who hurt me. I let go of every hurt and forgive even as Christ first forgave me. This I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
