Sharing the Daily Word

Part of today's reading plan was from Matthew 18.  It is the story of the servant who's debt was forgiven by his master.  The servant then demands payment from someone else who owes him.  He does not forgive the man's debt but has him thrown in prison.  This is a wonderful example of our sins being forgiven by Jesus.  So then, do we forgive others for failing us or are we following the example of this servant who chose to condemn the man? 

21 Then Peter came to him and asked, “Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?”
22 “No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven!     
Matthew 18:21-22
