Mt 18:15-20

Forgiveness and the Cross

0 A130OT24 MedArt 17 EN 4c

Of all the virtues Jesus wanted His disciples to possess and practice, forgiveness probably tops the list. The word forgiveness appears in the Gospels more than any other word.

The challenge He poses to us is can we practice a “cross-like” forgiveness. Can we forgive even those who hurt us deeply even to the point of killing us?
