“Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”
- Matthew 18:21-22
Forgiveness! Who? What? When? and Where? We’ve all heard the saying, “Hurt me once - shame on you. Hurt me twice - shame on me.” In life we learn that people will hurt us and our response is our responsibility, right? But how true is this saying? And does it line up with what Jesus taught us about forgiveness? One thing that seems very clear in human relationships is that forgiveness is a very important ingredient.
Morello Hills is excited to have Pastor and Teacher Steve Diehl as our special guest this Sunday. Steve and his wife Becky lead an organization named Forgiveness Ministries (forgivenessministries.com). For about 17 years they have focused on this area of forgiveness and the healing that it produces.
