Jesus taught His disciples to forgive. He told them that Heavenly Father would forgive their sins if they forgave others.

Once Peter asked Jesus how many times he should forgive someone who did something wrong. “Seven times?” Peter guessed.

“Seventy times seven,” Jesus said.

Jesus forgave people who felt sorry about their sins. When He forgave one woman, she felt so grateful that she washed His feet with her tears.

Jesus also forgave people who didn’t know they were doing something wrong. He asked Heavenly Father to forgive the men who crucified Him. They didn’t know they were hurting the Son of God.

Jesus forgives people because He loves them. I can try to be like Jesus by forgiving others too!
