Weekly Parent Letter September 18, 2023

September 18, 2023

Dear Parents and Guardians,

“Peter approached Jesus and asked him,’Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive?  As many as seven times?’  Jesus answered, “I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.’ ” (Matthew 18:21-22)

This is probably a scripture passage we all know by heart.  Although a familiar passage, are we able to apply it to our daily lives? We might fall short from time to time in the area of forgiveness.  However, God is all-loving and all-merciful.  How wonderful!  Struggling to forgive someone in your life? Look to the Lord and ask Him to open your heart to have room for peace, love and joy.  

Knowing the Lord is kind and merciful,

Ms. Danielle Gonzalez
