The Parable Of:

The Unmerciful Servant



Matthew 18:23-35

   Because the Kingdom of heaven is like this. 

Once there was a king who decided to check on his servants’ accounts.  He had just begun to do so when one of them was brought in who owed him millions of dollars. 

   The servant did not have enough to pay his debt, so the king ordered him to be sold as a slave, with his wife and his children and all that he had, in order to pay the debt.  The servant fell on his knees before the king.  ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay you everything!’ 

The king felt sorry for him, so he forgave him the debt and let him go.

   “Then the man went out and met one of his fellow servants who owned him a few dollars.  He grabbed him and started chocking him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he said.  His fellow servant fell down and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back!’ 

   But he refused; instead, he had him throw en into jail until he should pay the debt. 

   When the other servants saw what had happened, they were very upset and went to the king and told him everything.  So he called the servant in.  ‘You worthless slave!’ he said. ‘ I forgave you the whole amount you owed me, just because you asked me to. 

You should have had mercy on your fellow servant, just as I had mercy on you.’ 

   The king was very angry, and he sent the servant to jail to be punished until he should pay back the whole amount.”  

   And Jesus concluded,  “That is how my Father in heaven
will treat every one of you unless
you forgive your brother
from your heart. ”
