Matthew 18:21-22
“Lord, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?”
“Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy times seven.”

Seventy Times Seven by Steve Garnaas Holmes
Because you will find
that many reasons not to.

Because it will take that many times
to go through the motions
before you do it from the heart.

Because you have to keep setting
that burden down again
until you are free.

Because we never stop
letting go.
