NT Gospels: Matthew Then his lord called him (Matt. Mat Mt) Christian Bible Study Resources, Dictionary, Concordance and . The servant who wouldn’t forgive Posted by Ben Clapton on Febru Decem On Sunday, my officer preached on a passage from Matthew. It was the passage where Peter asks how many times he should forgive someone who sins against him. A servant committed a sin and he said: O Allah,forgive me my sins, and Allah (the Exalted and Glorious)said:My servant commited a sin and then he came to realise that he has a Lord Who forgives the sins and takes to account (the sinner) for the sin. The servant, however, would not forgive. He applied the principle of justice without mercy. The shocking aspect of his behavior is his failure to exercise toward his fellow servant even a little of the generosity with which he himself had been treated. For some reason, he just did not get it.
The servant has been forgiven a huge debt and yet is unwilling to forgive even a small debt owed to him. Such unwillingness shows, though, that he really is not able to receive God's forgiveness. For truly to receive forgiveness is to recognize how extravagant God's gracious forgiving love is and, in response, to offer it to others. (28) Which owed him an hundred penceHere the calculation is simpler than in Matthew The "hundred pence" are a hundred Roman denarii (the denarius being equal to sevenpence-halfpenny), a hundred days' wages of the labourer and soldier, enough to provide a meal for 2, men ().There is a considerable truthfulness in the choice of such a sum, which has, perhaps, been too little noticed.

I believe God will only forgive us to. First published in , The Servant - written by the nephew of famous novelist and short story writer Somerset Maugham - is difficult to categorise. At 75 pages, it is longer than a short story but not long enough to be considered a novel. But I suppose that does not really matter very much/5(31).
The Lord shall never be willing to forgive him, but rather the anger of the Lord and His jealousy will burn against that man, and every curse which is written in this book will rest on him, and the Lord will blot out his name from under heaven. The Gospels: Matthew 18 – Parable of the Unforgiving Servant It’s Hard to Forgive. Jesus often said that God is merciful. But he also said, in a statement that can send chills up the spine, “If you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses” (Matt. , NRSV). But, the servant couldn't afford to repay the k! The servant was told that he was to be sold; along with his wife and children. All that he had would have to be sold to repay that payment. The servant fell to his knees and begged his master to have patience with him. However, when this man, found a fellow servant who owed him money, he threw that person into jail for not paying the debt. When the master heard of this he was outraged and said: “I forgave you a huge debt, yet you refused to show mercy on your fellow servant and forgive his debt.
