Scripture Reading:                    Mat. 18:23-35.

Memory verse for the week:   Mat 18:21-22

21 Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?”

22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. (NKJV)                                       

“I’m going to have my own pound of flesh. Surely, my dad must pay for the pains he caused me. At age 2, he dumped me in a motherless baby after the demise of my mother who suffered from partial stroke before she eventually died. Since then, hardly does he check on me twice in a year. He has found solace in the arms of his new wife. What a callous man he is.” Hannah, now a 13-year old teenager told her friends in a motherless owned private school in Lagos, Nigeria.

At one time or the other in life, we passed through deep pain. Some we easily forget, while others remain a deadly monster in our mind, no matter how we try to forget such experiences, anyway. Hum… the prescription of our Lord and saviour remains the same, despite our “cogent reasons”. We are to forgive 70×7 times, just in one day! Mat 18:22.

The devil hinders the prayers of an unforgiving heart. Mark 11:25-26. Don’t you know the devil is the accuser of the brethren? Rev. 12:10. Nothing should be too hard to give up. Don’t wait for the one who has hurt you ask for your forgiveness before you forgive.

Joyce Meyer, a woman of God, was sexually and emotionally abused by her own father from childhood so many times before age 18. She has put all that behind her, led her father to Jesus Christ and baptized him on 2nd day of December 2001. Her ministry spans all over the world proclaiming the message of Hope.

Would you do likewise?



  1. Healing balm of Jesus, heal my broken spirit, in the name of Jesus.
  2. I receive grace to forgive and forget all pain and hurt done against me, in the name of Jesus.
