Going All the Way

        In today's Gospel reading from Matthew 18, Jesus taught Peter to keep forgiving a brother who sinned against him. According to Jesus, we are either forgiving or not forgiving. Forgiving means forgiving always, and if we can only forgive a fixed number of times, then we are basically not forgiving. The same goes with obeying God, loving others, being holy, etc.  Obeying God means obeying him in all things; loving others, loving all the way; being holy, doing it the best you can. See how God tried to save us by dying for us ~ that's going all the way!
