Freedom and Forgiveness (1 of 7)
Series: The Freedom of Forgiveness
Rick White
Matthew 18:21-35


Matt. 18:21 Then Peter came and said to Him, ''Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?'' 22 Jesus said to him, ''I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. 23 ''For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a certain king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves. 24 ''And when he had begun to settle {them,} there was brought to him one who owed him ten thousand talents. 25 ''But since he did not have {the means} to repay, his lord commanded him to be sold, along with his wife and children and all that he had, and repayment to be made. 26 ''The slave therefore falling down, prostrated himself before him, saying, 'Have patience with me, and I will repay you everything.' 27 ''And the lord of that slave felt compassion and released him and forgave him the debt. 28 ''But that slave went out and found one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and he seized him and {began} to choke {him,} saying, 'Pay back what you owe.' 29 ''So his fellow slave fell down and {began} to entreat him, saying, 'Have patience with me and I will repay you.' 30 ''He was unwilling however, but went and threw him in prison until he should pay back what was owed. 31 ''So when his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were deeply grieved and came and reported to their lord all that had happened. 32 ''Then summoning him, his lord said to him, 'You wicked slave, I forgave you all that debt because you entreated me. 33 'Should you not also have had mercy on your fellow slave, even as I had mercy on you?' 34 ''And his lord, moved with anger, handed him over to the torturers until he should repay all that was owed him. 35 ''So shall My heavenly Father also do to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart.''
