Message: “The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant” from Rev. Tom Hathaway

The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant

Jesus tells a parable in Matthew 18 about a king who forgives his servant a huge, huge debt. The forgiven servant then goes and has someone thrown in prison for a minor debt that they're owed. While the moral of the story is "don't be a hypocrite like that guy," Rev. Tom Hathaway explores what this parable has much to teach us about forgiveness and how it acts as a barometer of our spiritual health.

From Series: "Parables: Jesus the Storyteller"

Jesus was a master storyteller. He constantly found ways to take everyday objects, customs, and practices and use them to illustrate profound spiritual truths. Two millenia later, however, those everyday things he used to open the hearts and minds of his students, aren’t quite so common. In this six week series, we tackle six of Jesus’ parables from the Gospel of Matthew. With a little bit of context, we discover that they still have much to teach us about compassion, generosity, and living good lives.
