Who among us?

Who among us is not in need of forgiveness? I ask, have you not offended someone you love? Have you not slighted someone who is not “like” you? Have you not acted in a superior way to someone with whom you work or with whom you come in contact on a regular basis? Have you not been unforgiving to someone who has asked forgiveness? Have you not forgiven someone who has hurt or slighted you and has yet to ask for your forgiveness? Do we not need to forgive seventy times seven? Truly is there a limit to the times or the degree of forgiveness we need to forgive?

Who among us is not in need of asking God’s forgiveness for some act or inaction on our own part? Who among us has not slighted God? Who among us has not acted as though we don’t need His, our Saviour’s, forgiveness?

Mark 11:25. . . .
New American Standard Bible (©1995)
"Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions.

King James Bible
And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

American Standard Version
And whensoever ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have aught against any one; that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Matthew 18….21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
