Forgiving people is hard work!  As Pastor Rob reflects on the parable of the unforgiving servant (Matthew 18:21-35), he unpacks some of the particular challenges in forgiving people.

Why do we forgive people then?  First, as Jesus reminds us, NOT forgiving people is even harder!

Second, we’ve been claimed by God and grafted into the family of God…and this family has a particular business, namely, forgiveness.  Fortunately, Jesus challenge to invite people 77 times isn’t a sales quota for forgiveness, but an invitation to turn to him for the strength, wisdom and compassion to forgive others.
