Matthew 18:23. “Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.”
Jesus, after telling Peter to forgive infinitely, told the disciples a parable about a king and his servants. He knew that forgiveness doesn’t come easily for many of us, and that we would struggle with it. So He used one of His wonderful parables to help us understand the importance of learning to forgive.
He described how the king called his servants to account for their debts, and of how some were forgiven, and some were not. It’s quite a dramatic story, and one which I look forward to telling in my own words.
The passage starts in Matthew 18:23 and ends with verse 35. Please read it over, study it, and be ready to dig into it with me!
