Forgiveness is the key that opens the lock to a life of joy.

Matthew 18:21-22

Then Peter approaching asked him, “Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus answered, “I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.”

Peter thought he was being very noble in extending forgiveness to his brother as many as seven times.

Jesus countered by telling Peter that basically…you must forgive your brother an infinite number of times.

This is exactly what our Loving Creator does with each of us.

Forgiveness changes hearts and brings the kingdom of God to life in the present moment.

It also frees you from the bondage of the chains that grudges and resentments cast upon you.

So let go of any past transgressions against you.

Ask for forgiveness for any wrongdoings.

Forgive yourself.

God does.

Then…bask in the freedom of God’s unfolding and unending unconditional Love.
