All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

The name 70x7 is synonymous with God's eternal forgiveness. Matthew 18:21-22 in the new King James version of the Bible reads: Then Peter came to Him and said, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven."
Jesus isn't telling us to forgive our brothers 490 times, or 70 times, or 77 times. He's telling us we should always forgive our brothers when they have sinned against us. God in heaven has forgiven us all of humanity's sins. How wrong it would be for us to deny our brothers and sisters a similar forgiveness for much lesser matters.

HERE ARE THE LYRICS ENJOY!
I've been living in this house here
Since the day that I was born
These walls have seen me happy
But most of all they've seen me torn
They've heard the screaming matches
That made a family fall apart
They've had a front row seat
To the breaking of my heart
7 times 70 times
I'll do what it takes to make it right
I thought the pain was here to stay
But forgiveness made a way
7 times 70 times
There's healing in the air tonight
I'm reaching up to pull it down
Gonna wrap it all around
I remember running down the hallway
Playing hide-and-seek
I didn't know that I was searching
For someone to notice me
I felt alone and undiscovered
And old enough to understand
Just when I'm s'posed to be learning to love you
Let me doubt again
7 times 70 times
I'll do what it takes to make it right
I thought the pain was here to stay
But forgiveness made a way
7 times 70 times
There's healing in the air tonight
I'm reaching up to pull it down
Gonna wrap it all around
I lost count of the ways you let me down
But no matter how many times you weren't around
I'm all right now
God picked up my heart and helped me through
And shined a light on the one thing left to do
And that's forgive you
I forgive you
7 times 70 times
If that's the cost I'll pay the price
7 times 70 times
I'll do what it takes to make it right
I thought the pain was here to stay
But forgiveness made a way
7 times 70 times
There's healing in this house tonight
I'm reaching up to pull it down
Gonna wrap it all around
Yeah
I'm gonna wrap it all around
I've been living in this house here
Since the day that I was born
