No End to Forgiveness

Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.

Sometime the same person hurts or angers us repeatedly. Evidently Peter had this problem with someone. Jesus said to forgive 7 tines 70. That’s 490 times. I don’t think He was specifying only 490 times. I believe that was a figure of speech He used to say forgiveness has no end. God doesn’t keep account of how many time we sin and how often He forgives us. He totally forgives us and doesn’t ever bring it up or think about it again. Are we to do less for others than God does for us?
