V35…forgive your brother from your heart.
The kingdom of God is a kingdom of forgiveness. Wholehearted forgiveness. The “master” in this story Jesus is telling, forgives a massive debt “completely”. He responds with mercy and forgiveness for the entire, enormous, life-crippling debt. There is now no longer anything owing. He is free.
The absolutely mean spirited and greedy response of this free man to his servant, stands in stark contrast to the actions of his master.
I live in the Kingdom of God. A Kingdom of extravagant forgiveness and freedom from debt.
It is my culture.
Lord God – you have mercifully and completely forgiven me. Fill me afresh Holy Spirit – I need your help. May Your kingdom come here on earth as in heaven – through me, as I forgive as you do.
