7×70

“‘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 times seven.’”

Matthew 18:21-22

Over the past few months, it seems I’ve heard Chris August’s popular song “7×70″ on the radio probably somewhere close to that same number of times, but I never understood the story it told until watching this video.

There is a powerful message of hope in these lyrics for those familiar with the pain of living in a broken family…

Chris August’s album No Far Away is currently available to download from Amazon for $4.99.
