parable

when i was a kid, i learned the bible story where someone asks jesus how many times he should be expected to forgive another person. the forgiver suggests seven, and jesus says, “seventy times seven.” i remember thinking that number was huge. that’s 490 forgivenesses. i don’t know anymore if i think it’s too many or too few. i don’t know if anyone should be expected to forgive so much. i also can’t imagine living without grace.
