Preparing for worship

As you prepare for the weekend:

Ask yourself:

  • Is it easier for you to forgive someone or be forgiven
  • Why do you think that is?
  • When it comes to your understanding of God, how do you understand forgiveness as it comes from God for you
  • Read Matthew 18:21-35

  • Do you think the author intentionally preceded this story with [Mt. 18:15-20]? Why or Why not?
  • The king is settling accounts. A man is brought before the king who owes the king a lot of money. (think billions!)
  • If you owed someone a lot – how would it feel to have your account cleared?
  • How do you think that should have shaped the servants’ heart
  • How does the servant treat another who owes him a small amount? (think dollars… under 20) (see vss. 28-30)
  • How does the king react after hearing what the servant did?
  • What do you think is the big idea of this passage?
