Forgiving alway

We went to Mass. The reading was about forgiveness.

“Lord, how often must I forgive my brother if he wrongs me? As often as seven times. Jesus answered, not seven I tell you but seventy-seven times.” (Matthew 18:21-35)

I thought of the few nasty things people have done to me compared to some of the very nasty things done to others and our small capacity for letting go.
