There’s a Club called Seventy Times Seven, of which I am a member.
I don’t always display the Christ-likeness that God would have me remember.
Just as I must forgive my brother, so I must ask him to forgive me.
Foremostly, I ask the Lord. It’s through forgiveness that we remain free.
P. A. Oltrogge

Jesus said to him, ‘I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.‘“
