AUGUST 13

HIS FELLOW SERVANT FELL TO HIS KNEES AND BEGGED HIM

Matthew 18:28-31 “But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii. He grabbed him and began to choke him. pay back what you owe me! he demanded. His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him. Be patient with me and I will pay you back. But he refused and he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. When the other servants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed and went and told their master everything that had happened.”

This man had been shown great mercy. He had his debt cancelled.

Why didn’t he go out and show mercy to others who had wronged him? Because his heart was still evil.

He wasn’t sorry for what he did. He never repented of his sins.

How is your heart, today?

Have you truly repented of your sins?
