Forgiveness is usually a difficult word for us. We've all been therebattling through a struggle to forgive. And if you're married, have a family, have friends, have a job, have been turned down for a job, or have neighbors then you realize that forgiveness is at the heart of every healthy relationship. None of us is perfect, and we all need forgiveness, but how much are we willing to forgive when a relationship is on the line? Without forgiveness, our relationships wouldn't stand a chance.
Some of you may know that, in the Bible, the number "7" often means more than just "6+1"; 7 symbolizes completeness, perfection, or a standard to live up to. A study of Scripture shows that the number 7 actually relates to some really significant areas of our lives. In the next three weeks, we will see how the number 7 relates to our time, our relationships, and our resources. The creation account in Genesis 1 laid out a pattern for us to follow—rest on the seventh day. God taught us how to manage our time by resting, even though He didnt have to. The Bible teaches us that rest is important for ourselves, for others, and for God.
