Generous Forgiveness

How generous do you want the Lord to be with His forgiveness toward you? For me, I want Him to forgive me every time I sin. And He promises to do that.
However, what if I am the one sinned against by my brother, shall I forgive him as generously as I want the Lord to forgive me? Jesus taught that if your brother, “sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him” (Luke 17:4).
Has anyone ever sinned against you seven times in one day? Yet, if someone does, and repents every time, I need to forgive him. How much easier should it be if he sins against me fewer times!
