The rate at which news moves these days is blisteringly fast and one unintended consequence of a fast news cycle is that stories that anger us do not ever get resolved, they just get replaced by a new outrage. When our anger and frustrations are never calmed or remedied, we end up living in a state of perpetual bitterness at the “other side.” So right now, we all can probably think of several things about the other political side that angers us or that they or their leaders have done. Is it possible to just forgive them for all of those things? Jesus faced that exact question from Peter. The Bible says, “Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.” You cannot have peace without forgiveness. Today, let go of the perceived wrongs of those who have offended or personally hurt you and allow Jesus to fill that space in your heart with His peace.

“Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.” — Matthew 18:21-22 NIV
