FHE Lesson — “Until Seventy Times Seven” Principle: Forgiveness
“Jesus was asked how many times one should forgive, and he replied that we should forgive without limit. Forgive him ‘until seventy times seven.’ (Matt. 18:22.) In modern revelation, the Lord has said, ‘Inasmuch as you have forgiven one another your trespasses, even so I, the Lord, forgive you.’ (D&C 82:1.)”
~Franklin D. Richards
“Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?”
“Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.”
“Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.” Matthew 18:22
