At that time, 21 Peter approached Jesus and asked, ' Lord, how many times shall I forgive, if my brother sins against me? Up to seven times? ' 22 Jesus answered: ' don't tell you until seven times, but up to 70 times seven. 23 Because the Kingdom of heaven is like a King who decided to settle accounts with his servants. 24 when the hit, brought him a who owed him a huge fortune. 25 As the employee had not to pay, the master ordered that was sold as a slave, along with his wife and kids and everything he had, to pay for the debt. 26 the servant, however, fell at the feet of the master, and prostrate, pleaded: ' give me a deadline! and I will pay you all '. 27 therefore, the boss had compassion, let the employee and forgave him the debt. 28 To get out of there, that waiter found one of his fellow who owed him only 100 coins. He grabbed him and began to choke him, saying, ' Pay me what you owe me '. 29 the mate, falling at your feet, begged, ' give me a deadline! and I will pay you. 30 But the waiter didn't care that. Came out and told me to throw him in jail, until paid. 31 See what had happened, the other employees were very sad, sought the boss and told her everything. 32 Then the master sent for him and said to him: ' wicked Servant, I forgave you all your debt because you begged me. 33 shouldn't you also have compassion on your fellow, as I had pity on you? ' 34 the boss angry and delivered that waiter to torturers, even to pay your entire debt. 35 this is how my father who is in heaven will do with you, if not forgiving of heart to your brother. '
How many times do you think God has to forgive us? If we limit God's grace to seven, only seven times he should forgive us, we would have been long excluded from his grace. Few or almost no one would have access to the Kingdom of God if the logic, if the divine mathematics was as our logic or our human mathematics, if we wanted to impose for God until the limit of how many times He should forgive us. The merciful heart he always forgiving, raising us, giving us a new chance to rebuild. God's fool? He just accept anything? No! He is fair, is Merciful. In his mercy, He does not put limits to forgive us! Who experiences or the size of the mercy of God cannot be different for with your brother and sister. We cannot put limits on our condition to forgive each other. In fact, if we want the other better, we have to use the same remedy that God uses us. God will forgive us, giving us a chance to reerguermos us, to stand up, not prostrarmos us, not we dash us or we faint. It is the mercy of God that will put us, and we must, similarly, use of mercy to our next! I know that sometimes you're tired and that's why we say: "I can't forgive that person. I can't! That's enough! ". When you think too much, ask God forgave expand your "other" to the infinity of his mercy. When you no longer have the strength to endure the problem of his brother, the Sin and the fragility of next in your House, in your work, wherever you are, don't use your human misery, but the mercy of God. Our human misery is very limited. Many times, we can't forgive any time the error of another, but as our human misery is so needy of the mercy of God, use it to connect with each other. It's not that the mercy do well just to each other, it is good for us above all, she heals us, free us, makes us a human being more full of God, his love and his mercy. So, be sure to use the full form and infinite mercy to the miseries of the other, because God uses mercy with our miseries.
