The Unmerciful Servant

After Jesus explained to the disciples about who would be the greatest in the kingdom of heaven, Peter asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?”

Some things to consider to put Peter’s question into context:

  • It’s possible that Peter was having some issues with someone on the team.
  • Peter believes he is being generous.

Jesus answers Peter’s question with a parable that illustrates the importance of mercy and forgiveness.

“…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…” Romans 3:23
